WTB reins

I need to get another set of reins. I don't care what condition, or kind (western/english, doesn't matter), just as long as they are joined together (no split reins), useable, at least 7ft long, and as cheap as possible.

These are most likely going to end up being used by my lesson kids (ages 6-10) so those really thick western reins would be less than ideal, but beggars can't be choosy. :)

I'd like to spend no more than $15 total, including shipping.

Alternatively, if you want to donate them, that'd be wonderful too!

I've got a few used, good condition, no flaws, Black english laced or flat reins that are 55" each side or a little over 9ft total. $12 each + $3 shipping each or ship two pair for $5.

go to lowes, look in the rope isle, cut off as many feet as you want, most of the lines are under a dollar a foot. COuple over hand knots where your hands go and a couple bowlin knots on the bit.
I make my own out of 1/4 inch multi colored cord, and small caribiner clips, A single 100 foot spool of rope is $9 out of that I get a matching rope halter, reins and a lead line.
Jeffers and Horse.com both sell under $10 braided and cord reins. If you have to have soemthing that says "reins" on them.

I actually just found some for way cheaper than expected.
Thank you both! I appreciate it!
And thanks for the tip Joe! It caused me to look a bit harder than I had originally. :)
