    Default Where to find longer than 30' long lines?

    I see standard is 30'. Where can I find something longer?

    I feel your pain. I'm not interested in long-lining on a 15m circle at a maximum.

    I spent years looking for longer lines. I finally made my own 50'-ers from some thin rope I found at a marine supply store. It stretches a bit and I don't like that feature. Otherwise, I'm very happy.

    You might try a really good western store. I recall some old skool western friends of mine having really long, flat cotton lines.

    Not sure what resources you have where you're located, but I've had custom pieces made by our local saddler/boot repair guy (made a leather lunge to my specs). My instructor also had a lot of luck in the Amish community with work being done for repairs and custom pieces...

    Glad Im not alone! 30' doesnt work so well on a big horse on 20 M circle. Yes I like to get my excercise :-) but outside rein around horse is too short. I have rope but dont care for feel. I like flat and light weight.

    Just found 35' for $53.95. :http://custom-tack.com/drivingreins.html

    West coast. Good idea about leather shop or boot repair making custom reins. Thank you!
