Seeking: Driving reins

Seeking driving reins. Black or white, please no brown.

I would prefer leather but am willing to buy cotton on nylon provided that they are in good condition and clean. Clip on preferred but not required. Will not buy reins in poor condition that are torn or severely cracked.

Payment will be by money order.

Thanks ^^

Camptown harness had some mini driving lines on e-bay, I don't think they sold. You might want to try there. I bought several things she had for sale, 2 nosebands, a throatlatch and a hip strap, they were all well worth the money.

Thanks! I'll check it out. The only problem is payment, since I'm a minor and have to pay by mail order.

She has a ligit buisness so I think that would be fine. She will probably send the lines out after payment is recieved.
II assumed you wanted mini lines, Is that correct or do you want horse size?

I was debating that. I saw that miniature horse lines ran at around 9' which almost seems too short.

I will look in my junk drawer when I feed tonight and see if I have any old horse lines. I know I have some amish made draft lines but they would be to heavy for your little gal. Probably wouldn't even fit through the turrets of a mini harness.

Also natural leather lines are proper in driving, even with a black harness. Reason being you do not want black die getting on your gloves, hands or clothing. Just a FYI.

Ah, I see. Perhaps I should reconsider then xD

I was going to say if I have black lines they are not of the quality of my brown lines. My amish lines are, I think, black from the bit to the half way point and natural from half way to the buckle. And since I am on an "FYI roll" snaps on the bit end of the lines are not recomended, due to the fact that they break easy. I know it is a pain to do the buckles but you get used to it vety quickly.

Well if it's well accepted to have black with brown, I have zero problem with it!
