My trainer's reins are braided and I noticed the other day that they are coming unraveled. I loaned him a pair of my reins to use, but would like to buy him a new pair of reins.

Can anyone suggest a good, long lasting brand for schooling? He has a show bridle, but uses his own bridle to school one of my horses and I thought that would be a good gift. I am not familiar with all the name brands and can't afford to spend a 100.00 on a pair of reins.

BTW - I am shopping at Smartpak so was looking at the Harwick reins? Are those good? He prefers the braided reins for schooling.

Thanks!
