These 10mm marine-grade polyester rope reins are made from top-quality soft, flexible rope that feels lovely to hold.

They give a fast rein 'release' (slide) to reward your horse quickly. 

They come with stainless steel or brass scissor rein clips.

These reins are one-piece for leading with the bridle and doing groundwork before riding (not suited for tying solid unless clips are removed)

  • They include detachable rein clips - scissor clips give the most versatility.
  • Easy Un-clipping allows leading/groundwork, or remove them easily for tying up with a lead rope, as reins aren't suitable for tying a horse.
  • The clips are lightweight so there is a breaking point in the rein. If a horse steps on the rein it's better to break a clip than the bridle or your horse! 
  • Designed to be light enough for good release (< 300g) to allow correct release on the bitless bridle/noseband chinstrap.
  • Easy to remove or replace the clips with looped rein ends. 
LightRider Rope Reins These 10mm marine rope reins are light to allow good release of the Light Rider bridle chinstrap. 
They come with solid brass or stainless steel scissor clips to match the bridle hardware, and are one piece of rope for leading in the bridle (not suited for tying solid). The loop ends make it easy to replace a clip too. 
Available in 4 sizes and 2 colours to match the bridles. Lightrider Reins come in rope, leather, beta biothane or cotton and include rein clips to get the most versatility from your LightRider Bitless Bridle.

The flat loop has internal hand stitching and is spliced for superior strength, while the tail end is back-spliced for extra weight and has a neat finish complete with a leather popper.
Each rein is 2.15m (7 feet) long and comes with solid brass or stainless steel rein clips.
Great for western or cow working disciplines. Click here to buy them.

These reins are just what I was looking for. They are very comfortable and the length is good too. I really like the colours.

Best reins

I have two pairs of these reins. They are light but heavy enough you feel them and they drape nicely without swinging around They are so soft and the perfect thickness. I love the clips so you can easily take them off and use them as a leadrope on long trail rides

Light rope reins

These reins are soft and the clips are light so there is very little additional weight on the horses head, what I especially like about them is the length. The extra length makes them ideal for in hand work ,I am able to work my horses from the shoulder with a gentle touch on and elasticity in the reins.

light rider rope reins (pony/cob)

love the reins - rope is great quality, good weight without being too thick. Easy to unclip and use as a lead-rope when necessary, eg grazing while out trail riding. Brown/gold colour perfect for palomino.

Best reins for small hands!

My first reins came with my light rider bridle a few years ago. They are still in excellent shape. They wash up great. Have ridden many sweaty miles with them. I love these reins so much I ordered another pair for my other horse. Tried to find something comparable in the USA and just couldn't. Excellent product.

Nice reins

I like these reins, I have had trouble with the clips breaking before, especially when the kids use them as a lead rope and clunk the clip on a pole or something, so I have a couple of spare ones. But good length and easy to attach, I have several of these and they are great, can also color-coordinate to a degree (more colours would be wonderful) which makes organising tack with 5 kids (& plenty of visitors) easier.

Beautiful reins in glossy dark brown with gold clips. My preference is thicker reins

versatile reins

By: on 17 July 2017
These are wonderful, comfortable in the hands, they don't snag in my horse's long mane and while I can leave them loose to let him snatch up some nice forest grass on the ride, their suppleness means I can quickly draw them up to reassure him if he spooks at a deer. (regular situation- graze/deer/spook!)

Very Happy with Bitless Bridle

By: on 2 March 2017
Love this! Been riding for many years but never tried a bitless until now. Was very impressed how easily the horse made the transition from bit to bitless. She is still very responsive and easy to manage. And so much happier, especially as she has young boys on her still learning to ride who can be a bit heavy on the reins. Very happy with this product, thank you.

Great Reins...

These reins are an awesome quality, lightweight, and easy to attach

Awesome reins

Thanks Natural Horse World - the rope reins are awesome! Really nice to hold and not to heavy either, which is good :). I really recommend this product!

LightRider Reins

Prefer these reins for my hackamore, as I don't like all the ropes flapping around the head and neck area. They are also much lighter than most rope reins. Wish they came in colours to match halters, as the black and brown, are easy to lose.

Very Soft Reins

By: on 28 June 2016
The LightRider Rope Reins are very soft! When I go on 2hr Trail Rides, the reins are very comfortable! They are nice and grippy and don't rub my hands at all! Also, my horse seems to be lighter in them! I love the quality of them! Very nice!! :)

Bought reins for my daughter & myself, great can swap between bridles, affordable price, nice & light for us both, clips great for small hands very happy with purchase.

Great Product

By: on 28 June 2016
Love these reins, comfortable to use allowing ease of release as reward for your horse's good efforts. Cannot recommend them highly enough.

Great Reins!

The "black & gold" rope reins look great with my black stockhorse style Lightrider bridle and are a good length for loose reined trail riding (I got the full size for my 15.3hh horse). They have a very nice feel.

excellent feel of the reins. I am using them as lead for the soft rope halter - excellent, feel safe & secure, and just 'right' weight.

WArmblood rope reins

The polyrope reins have a nice feel - silky smooth and light. They are long enough that I can sit upright whilst Murphy (16.3hh warmblood/cob) grazes or drinks. The clips work well and are also light. Our 11' Parelli finesse reins are much heavier and weigh 550 grams compared with the Lightrider reins weighing less than 300 grams. I recommend this product.

I love the reins as they do give a fast rein release. They are soft, light and very nice to ride in . I have the swivel clip on them as I do ground work before hand. Great rein worth buying. I am a trail rider.

I was very impressed with my LightRider Poly Rope reins! They are incredibly comfortable on my hands, light, and look great (both as a lead rope and as reins). They serve many purposes - I use mine as a lead rope, a lunge line (they are long enough!) and of course, as reins. Everything I expected and more :)
