Thinline reins - opinions?
 
I'm pretty sure someone mentioned them before... :wink:

ThinLine No Slip Reins - Reins from SmartPak Equine

Opinions?

I'm also very curious are they all smooth or have those "hand stops" (like this set: Dover Saddlery | Passier Sure Grip Hook Stud Reins . )

I love my Thinline reins. I have them on both my bridles. They are very grippy, resemble thick rubber in feel and give a little extra elasticity in your contact with the horse's mouth. Ironically I think my do slip a bit when I am wearing gloves. They never slip through my bare hands.

Thanks, MBP! I kinda remembered you mentioned them in past, but wasn't absolutely sure. :D

May I ask what kind of gloves do you use? I can't ride without gloves at all unfortunately (have them on even in 90F), but I was thinking if I should ask for those reins as X-mas present.

The gloves are by Ariat. There's no grippy surface on them at all which probably has something to do with it.

Just placed the order! So will check them out! :) (reviews on SmartPack are great as well)
