OH! I found a pair for only $20 that I believe will match my HDR bridle

Just a point to be aware of about cheap reins (which I learned to my own regret) is that they often are over-dyed, as it makes the leather looks better quality. The dye has a habit of coming off on your hands and horse's neck the first couple times you use them if you don't give them a good clean and wax first! Just a tip ;)

Huh, never knew that about the buckles being on the inside. My old schooling bridle has them on the outside, but I've never given much thought to it.

I've never seen them with a buckle like that. How cool....

Yeah I hadn't either until Carolynn mentioned it to me! I also, umm, cut the flash thingie off the noseband right before my class LOL Apparently that is frowned upon in Hunters as well, and if I need a flash it's for dressage and I have another bridle for that anyway!

DO NOT get those Silver Fox reins!! If you did, please ask for a refund! I speak from experiance, they fall apart, are overdyed, the lacing comes right apart, the hook and eye breaks EASILY ... Not worth the price...

Yeah I was starting to wonder about them, from some other reviews I had read...I may just go to the tack shop and look around, buying online is always a toss up unless you know the brand...I do really like Tory leather which are the ones I have now, maybe I could just find another one of their reins. They're not nearly as inexpensive though.
