How to Choose a Split Rein for You and Your Horse

The classic rein for western riding is the split rein. Split reins attach to the bit but do not attach to each other and are instead held together in the rider’s hand. Typically, split reins are made of a weighted leather along with various bit attaching options.

When choosing split reins look for top quality leather. Split reins are very versatile and traditionally long which allows you to customize their length. The rider may use split reins independently for training, or together, which is traditional for the show ring or on the ranch when your non-rein hand is used to open gates or needed for other tasks. In addition, riders may choose a split rein based on how it attaches to the bit. Which option you choose might be of convenience or aesthetic appeal, whichever suits your needs.

Split reins with concho ends provide an easy way to change bits and reins with a decorative stylish flair.

Buckle end split reins provide a neat and easy attachment to the bit that lasts for years. Brass buckles are top quality providing years of use without discoloration.

Split reins with leather water tie ends are traditional and attached to the bit with a leather tie.
