Reins that are pony-tested, pony-approved

In many ways, reins are the most important pieces of safety equipment you have. That’s why it’s important they both be 1) strong and 2) unlikely to slip through your fingers.

Ashley at the Go Pony blog recently reviewed our riding reins with Super Grip overlay, and we’re happy to say she found them as tough as we do.

If you’re a competitive trail or endurance rider, take a peek at the Go Pony blog. Ashley has done it all in the equine world – Western, English, and now endurance with her two ponies, Mimi and Liberty.

“The super-grip is really comfortable, and the grip is pony-tested — this is the only thing I can use on her that won’t rub blisters on my fingers.

Like all beta, it is ridiculously easy to take care of — wipe down, spray, or dunk in a bucket, and let drip dry.

Overall, I found them to be a very solid option, and very budget-friendly. Turnaround time was incredibly fast; the reins were shipped out the next day after I ordered them.”

Your reins can help you get a grip!

With the hot weather steaming up time in the saddle, who couldn’t use a little help keeping a grip on their reins?

That’s why we offer a Super Grip overlay on our beta biothane reins. Karen over at the Patently Bay blog recently reviewed our Super Grip reins and was pleasantly surprised at how well they held up in hot and misty weather.

What impressed me about the super grip material? It never gets slippery. Really. The first two times I used these reins, it was misting and/or sprinkling and the reins got wet (with the rest of my tack). I figured they’d slip through my hands since I didn’t even have gloves on but nope!

You have your choice of brown, black, or orange Super Grip added to any set of reins for just $5 extra. Five dollars isn’t much for the added safety and convenience this material gives.
