Reins!

What reins are you guys using?

I do a fair bit of hunting on prin as well as working on our dressage, hopefully start doing some HT soon. I'm currently using the continental reins and have decided I HATE THEM.

They're just awkward and awful! I find the little spacer bits get in the way.

Here's the kicker of course I want to spend as little as possible. A friend suggested the rubber coated reins but will they work for dressage?

I have two pairs of reins that I love, and tend to chop and change between them. One is a padded set of leather nappa reins, they are super soft, with some elasticity to them.
The other are plain leather, but with one side having a rubber 'pimple grip' coating - BRILLIANT in wet weather!

Doesn't sound like you are in US, but I gonna pitch in anyway... I love, love, love my Nunn Finer dressage reins! My neighbor got the pair too after my recommendation (also dressage, but different type), and she loves hers as well.
