    This is a reins issue and I am bummed :( I ordered a set of custom hair on water ties for my poly rope gaming reins which is my personal preference to ride in. I got my ties/loops and I LOVE them! Except, they are larger than I anticipated and normally my water ties have scissor snap ends so I can unclip one side when resting etc. Well with these new ones they are too wide to really put a snap on and they are a perfect weight alone right now so I don't really want to add a snap weight. As is they would work great on my snaffle except I can't figure out a solution for those times that I need to be holding my horse and for safety reasons would want one rein unclipped. I can't very well untie the entire set up from one end every time I am been trying to figure a way to make it work and am just stumped. Wish I had thought to get them made with a buckle...darnit. If anyone has any suggestions or ideas they would be greatly appreciated.

    What I've done with gaming reins after I've dismounted is to simply bring the rein over my horse's head so that when I lead him, I am leading with both sides of the bit. I don't like leading a horse with one side of the bit.
