How to make this type of reins?

I've been wanting to make a pair of these reins for my horse, and they seem painfully easy to make compared to other tack I've made.

I recognize that all of the knots are double overhand (or "blood knots") And I know how to make them (I make rope halters all the time) but I can't figure out how to do them in one continuous strand like that.

I figured out how to do the ones that hold the snap just fine, it's the ones in the middle that I'm having problems with :)

Has anyone made reins like this, or bought a pair and seen how they work? I keep trying to work it out through pictures but can't quite get it.

Thanks! :)

All I could say is welcome to the forum. I like leather my self that is just me

LOL I hate leather reins :smile: I'm seriously tough on my tack and leather is just too high maintenance :razz: Anything that can be nylon or another strong synthetic material is, with saddles and occasionally bridles being the only exception :)

Which is also the reason I make 90% of any tack that can be safely made at home, I hate spending a lot of money on things I know I'm just going to demolish eventually :P

Nevermind! Figured it out :) Just had to take a closer look at those knots :P

So problem solved, thanks anyway :)

Speaking of which, I'm happy to explain it to anyone who is also curious :)
