"wish were longer"
"these are not split reins, they don't come in pairs. to whomever said need order two because doesnt come in pairs like should. Think you had misunderstanding of what the reins are. Its roping reins, attach each end to bit or hackamore, its a single rein, like ""loop"" reins that ropers and barrel racers use as well as anyone who wants to use loop leather roping reins to ride with. Would like them to be at least 8ft long, they too short for my horses too. have nice feel and weight to them. yes they are oiled. "
"be aware need pair"
be sure you order two, they don't come, as you might expect for reins, in pairs.
"Not too short"
These reins are great for mounted shooting. I just had to wipe a bit of the oil off. Heavy-duty, nice thick leather; definitely not cheapo's.
The reins were way too short. I tried to use them on my daughters cob size pony and they were even to short for her.
