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! You can sometimes find them on eBay for less than $70.
Love them. I love the fact that you can just take a sponge to them and get the grungies off. Nice and supple, too, unlike other rubber reins. I have them both on my jumping bridle as well as my dressage bridle.

Love them for flatwork. Bought several pairs before I realized that they do not allow enough grip when wet from rain or sweat to be functional for hunting or cross-country. So I use them for dressage and schooling.
