ThinLine English Reins

Provide your horse with the softest and most secure connection with our specially designed reins.

Quiet stability of hand-to-bit contact are the key goals of all riders. Challenges with holding a rein can create tension. When the hand is tense, this tension moves from the hand all the way up to the shoulder. Loosing a rein in a key moment is something we all wish to avoid. Our rubber grip style reins, wrapped in no-slip ThinLine, allows riders to have a soft, comfortable yet secure grip which translates to an elastic, sure connection to our horse.

While initially developed for riders with arthritis, riders of all levels love the improved elasticity and connection with their horses when riding with ThinLine English reins.

The ThinLine rein is durable and guaranteed to improve communication and confidence with your horse.

Options and Sizing

Bit ends: stud hook and buckle end

All reins come with martingale stops.  If you do not need this, you may remove it.

The option titled “reins with stops” means there are bands of leather sewn onto the handheld portion of the reins. Often called hand stops.

Rein Care Instructions

Keeping the Non-Slip going strong:

  • *Wiping down the rein with a baby wipe prior to riding can keep light arena dust from settling and improve the non-slip function.
  • *Temperature can alter the feel of the reins.  The warmer they are, the softer they will be and the more non-slip. Your hand generally provides enough warmth to get the rein to the optimal performance temperature.
  • *Steer clear of chemicals!  Show Sheen and some fly sprays will eventually cause mild stiffening of the edges of the foam.  If you are using chemicals please rinse your hands before riding and you will greatly improve the longevity of your reins.

CARE INSTRUCTIONS: We strongly recommend using all-natural  ThinLine Cleaners. It’s completely safe for the ThinLine foam, and does an excellent job of cleaning the leather too! Simple dish soap also works and baby wipes are handy for a quick clean up!

Please avoid leather care products; they contain oil which is damaging to ThinLine. While it looks and feels like leather, it is a special, nonslip, pressure distributing foam. For conditioning the leather, we recommend using a paste-like conditioner (like Horseman’s One Step) so that you can control the application, avoiding contact with the ThinLine.

Please be aware that leather care products and chemicals such as Show Sheen and fly spray can cause the foam to harden.

    I began using the Thinline reins when it started to get very cold in NJ this winter. I began having an issue that my regular leather reins were quite slippery in the freezing temperatures and when you ride as many young horses as I do slippery reins can be a little scary! No matter if the temperature is 19 degrees or 90 degrees these reins stay the same. Aside from the non slip feature, the reins have also helped my carpal tunnel in my hands. Since I started riding consistently in them the pain and numbness has significantly decreased. A great product all around!
