    I really love the pimpled rubber reins I have on my four year old's bridle. They aren't rubber covered; they are *just* rubber so they aren't super thick and they just have a nice feel to them. For...

    Your point is well taken, but it sounds like the OP is moving, and had already planned to downsize based on that change.

    I currently have two horses, and neither of them lack for anything. ...
