Plain Reins: A Straightforward Guide for Every Equestrian Enthusiast

When it comes to horse riding, the reins are more than just a tool for control - they're a lifeline. And not just any reins, we're talking about the classic, no-nonsense, "Plain Reins". This blog post is a one-stop-shop for everything you need to know about them. So giddy up, and let's dive straight into the world of reins!

What are English style reins?

The British aren't just good at making tea, they've nailed the equestrian game too! English style reins like our 'Heritage Plain Reins', are typically made from leather and are often smooth or 'plain'. With hook stud billets and stainless steel fittings, they're as reliable as they come. These sturdy reins offer excellent grip, control, and are a staple in any English riding discipline.

Which type of reins are typically used for beginner riders?

Hey rookies, don't fret! We've got the perfect set for you too. Beginner riders typically start with Plain Reins like our 'Collegiate Syntovia+ Plain Flat Reins'. Their synthetic leather design ensures durability while their simplicity makes them an excellent choice for those just starting out.

How many types of reins are there?

If you thought there were as many types of reins as there are horses in the stable, you'd be... well, not far off. But to keep things simple (and not to write an encyclopedia), let's say there's a 'handful'.

What are the 5 types of reins?

Okay, get your notebook ready. The five types of reins are split reins, roping reins, Romel reins, draw reins, and of course, the star of our show - the Plain Reins. And among these, our 'Shires Aviemore Plain Reins' are a crowd favourite, featuring classic leather design with stainless steel fittings. Reliable? Check. Durable? Check. Just Plain awesome? Double-check.

What is the difference between Western and English reins?

Just like their cultures, Western and English reins have their own flair. Western reins are typically long, held in one hand, and come in a variety of styles. Meanwhile, English reins (like our JHL Plain Reins and Eco Rider Soft Eco Leather Plain Reins) are held in both hands, offering different levels of control and subtlety of cues.
