Weird Reins

I just bought new reins recently and upon further investigation I noticed that the ends are fixed and I have no idea how I would attach them to a bit. I can post pics if you do not understand what I mean. Any ideas?

Pics would be helpful. I've only ever seen two types of reins. The ones with clips on the end and the ones that have a hook that slides into a slot on the leather (kind of hard to explain, but I'll find a pic if you want).

That's the the thing, they have no clips or the little hooks like you described.

I think they are meant to loop back on themselves somehow, but I have never actually owned a pair like that.

Maybe you could loop a pair of snaps through them so they would be easy to take on and off (I put snaps on all my reins).

I have never even seen a pair like this before. I didn't realize they are like this until I already had them home.

I have had some of those. I looped them through snaps, so that I could move them around. Once looped, they are neat and tidy.

How would I loop them through though?

Run the end back through the loops. Make sure the long end goes through the bit ring or snap rings before you pull it through.
I guess I could draw a pic, if you need it.....

I'm guessing that you are either supposed to do as Allison said, or you could loop them into the reins and pull the ends through.. If they have the buckle at the held end.. That sounds confusing.. I'll find a pic
Like you know how with some lead ropes you have the removable clip?

That's the best pic I can find for now, does it make sense? If not I've got a leadrope like it that would have the same process as the reins that I can take photos of.
