SPLIT REINS / DRIVING REINS

Driving Reins with nickel scissor snaps permanently spliced in

Tail ends: Full leather poppers


​Price:

25' length, 1/2" rope: $95.00 set of 2


Some people prefer split reins over loop reins so I offer them as well. One of the concerns about loop reins is that if the horse gets a foot through them, he could get seriously injured. Unless there is a weak link on the reins like a snap, something else could break - because the rope won’t.  And the tail ends of split reins create built-in spankers - something loop reins don't have.

Turkshead Knots/Tassels (doubleweave pattern) on tail ends

Since the possibilities are almost endless when considering the choices for both ends, there are just too many combinations to list here.  Below, I have pictures of some split reins I have made for customers with the price of that particular set.  This will give you an idea of the cost as you decide on the details of your split reins. Again, please refer to the other Reins pages to see all the options available and call or email to get a quote on the set of reins that you want.

Whether you're looking for split reins for riding or long lines for driving, I can make pretty much anything you want.  As with other tack, you can choose a basic style or add custom trim for something special.

Driving reins - including Feather Weight lines (similar to the Parelli Feather Lines) - are described after the split reins.

Leather Lace on tail ends


​Price:

(7' length, 3/8" rope: $36.50 set of 2)


Whether you are driving from the ground or from a cart, I can make driving reins for you in a variety of styles and in any length.  I can make "Feather Weight Lines" with 1/4" rope (similar to Parelli's Feather Lines) or you can choose 3/8" or 1/2" diameter rope for heavier lines.  If you will be using the reins with a rope halter, I can make them with button ends for easy on/off or with eye splices for direct attachment or if you want to be able to add or take off snaps.  I can also splice in snaps permanently or you can choose any of the other rope or leather connectors I make to use the lines with a bit, sidepull, halter, etc.  Please go to the other Reins pages to see all the options that are available. Depending on the size of your horse, 20' - 25' is the usual range for length but I have made driving reins as short as 17' and as long as 30'.   

Split Reins with Basic Buttons

(for tying onto slobber straps)

Full Leather Poppers on tail ends


​Price:

7' length, 1/2" rope: $56.00 set of 2


Keep in mind that split reins have 4 ends to finish (opposed to 2 ends with loop reins) so they are more labor intensive to make and are therefore quite a bit more expensive. Also remember that you will be holding 2 ropes in your hand so the 3/8" and 1/2" diameters are usually preferred.

Loop Driving Reins with medium brass bolt snaps permanently spliced in


​Price:

45' length, 3/8" rope: $52.75


The tail ends of driving reins are usually finished with leather poppers attached through eye splices, just like my lead ropes and strings.  But you could choose something else - button, knot/tassel, etc. - if you want a custom set of lines. You could also choose to have loop driving reins - one long continuous length of rope with connectors on each end.

Split Reins with Spliced in Brass Scissor Snaps

Turkshead Knots/Tassels (doubleweave pattern) on tail ends


​Price:

7' length, 1/2" rope: $93.00 set of 2


Split reins can be finished in the same manner as other reins so please refer to the descriptions and pictures on the other Reins pages. I can make split reins in any length, but the usual  range is 6' to 8' - depending on if they are tied onto something or have connectors to attach to a bit, sidepull, etc. You also have several options for the tail ends including: full popper (like on lead ropes), tassel-ette, leather lace trim (short or long), a plain backsplice or a custom finish - knots, tassels, etc. I can add any amount of braided trim to split reins as well.
