Getting a horse use to the commands again.

I'm help my friend get his horse back into "shape". In other words we are starting to work her a again. From what I understand she is really rusty on the vertical. I need to know, which is the best length of rein to have, I do not ride split reined.
I like my reins longer, so when we are stopped I can let my horse eat without having to lean up out of the saddle, and sometimes the horn jabbing into to me.
I ride western if that makes any difference. But like I said, I have never measured the reins I use, because I don't own my own horse. I work for people.
Any input is helpful.

I buy extra long 7' training reins made of cotton and either criss-cross them over his shoulders or tie them at the end. Any gaming/roping reins (continuous rein) are too short in my opinion so I need the split reins that I can tie. Hope this helps.
