The reins you choose will be influenced by your riding discipline and the feel they provide. If you ride strictly for pleasure, then you can choose any type of rein you like and that works for you. If you compete, then your rein choice will be guided by the tradition of your discipline, which also impacts the reins’ performance design. For example, laced leather reins are traditional in the hunter ring; they’re attractive and they offer grip. Flexible rubber reins are popular on the cross country course and in stadium jumping as these provide grip in any type of weather.
