    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.

    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.
