    I love them! I gave up on the Eventa reins after trying these. They are smaller and easier to hold IMO. The leather is soft, cleans up and oils nicely. I have a pair for each bridle! Worth the price!...

    1. It's OK to admit that the horse you've put a ton of work into isn't the right horse afterall.

    It must be much tougher for those of you who live so further North in Alberta. I live in the PNW and I've steadily acquired an actual diagnosis of Seasonal Affective Disorder. I too use a lamp, do...

    Yes, my mare went to clinics at 4 years old with me aboard. I think it's great to take them young, because it exposes them to new experiences and perpetuates the work ethic. If you can instill that...

    Why do you do this?
    To get out of my comfort zone, puts new eyes on my riding and a chance to meet others who are working hard like me. I go to eventing camp every year and it is by far the best...

    I have a pair. They're OK for the PNW winters, but I also team them up with either a thin wool or silk sock. They are a tad too roomy in the ankle area for me, but you know it's not a deal breaker....
