You can get trail reins. I have some and they are 10ft (5ft on each side) and they feel as long as I normally let my split reins go. My mare has started peanut rolling (lol odd lil Arab) so she needs the length. The trail reins give her the ability to do that (ill let her do that before bringing her head up to TRY to collect) and at the same time I can hold them like English or Western reins. And unlike a split rein you are not going to lose them because they are solid, so no tying in knots ether.

Those sound better than my reins, but I'm still leaning toward split reins. I have a few other reason for wanting them, other than just length. But thank you for the suggestion! Maybe I'll have to try some trail reins sometime too. ;)

I also use split reins. Don't get cheapo ones though, you want the ones that are weighted. I had a pair of cheapo ones and no matter how I held my reins I would always end up losing one. With my weighted ones I don't have that issue :).

I'll remember that! I think I'd prefer the feel of weighted ones too, so that's good. :) Thank you!
