Continuous Nylon "Roper" Rein

Roper reins are made from ½" double braid marine rope.

These rope reins come nine, ten or eleven feet long with brass or steel (you choose) scissor snaps on each end to connect to the bit. I use a harness leather (russet) or latigo (black and burgundy) tab to connect the snap to the rope. Reins measure from the tip of one snap to the tip of the opposite snap. Please make sure you are ordering the correct length!

All reins are also available in Tan and White/blue tracer double braid marine rope. I use thread that matches the rope to stitch the tabs on because it looks great! See futher down on the page the color options for all reins.

NOTE: White with blue tracer is discontinued except for what can be found on the Bargain Barn page.

All continuous reins can be custom made to suit your needs...just add any length to your cart and then use the comment box provided during checkout to ask for something different.

Sport Rein

Tied like you would a mecate on slobber straps, but the same on both sides without the extra for a lead rope. They are a continuous rein, finished with a popper on each end. It takes about 1' (give or take) of rope each side to tie them onto the slobber straps. In the picture below, the rein is shown tied to a medium size slobber strap (about 6" long when folded in half) so you will need to decide how long your rein should be. 11'-12' is a good length to leave you with 9½' - 10½' continuous rein that can be adjusted (shortened)depending on how they are tied to the slobber straps. These are available in ½" rope in Black, Tan or White/blue tracer.

NOTE: White with blue tracer is discontinued except for what can be found on the Bargain Barn page.

NOTE: Headstall & slobber straps sold separately.

Mane Hair Mecates

Traditional mane hair mecates provide a true feel to the horse for training. Mane hair mecate reins are hand made from real horse hair.   These mecates can be used with a bosal or headstall and slobber straps. 

100% Mane Hair Mecates Softer feel in your hands.  Made from 100% pure mane hair by Jose Ortiz.  Hand twisted and then braided into 5/8" rope, they are 22' long.  Exceptional quality.  Leather popper on one end, turks head braided into horse hair on the other.

Mane hair mecates can be purchased from Hitching Post Supply.

I have opted out of carrying them this year for inventory purposes. The folks at Hitching Post Supply are awesome to do business with and carry the same 5/8" Jose Ortiz mecates. Give them a call if you want a particluar color combo and see what they can do. Tell them Mary from NHS recommended you to them.
