These rope split reins are hand spliced locally in QLD. The leather slobber straps add weight and feel to the bit for better communication with your horse. They also take some of the wear and tear that might otherwise be applied directly to the reins.This UV resistant, polyester equestrian rope is very soft on your hands yet impressively strong and hard-wearing. The rope is also colour-fast and machine-washable. Part of the new Toowoomba Saddlery Pro Series tack range.
