Category: Lead Reins

Here at Fylde Saddlery, we have a wide range of equestrian items, and in this category you will find our range of lead reins. This range features eight different kinds of lead ropes for horses.

Lead reins, also known as leading reins, are a type of rein used to direct your horse’s head left or right. A rein consists of a pair of long straps that are usually connected to the bit, noseband or headpiece. A lead rein or lead rope allows you to control the movement of the horse.

As a lead for your horse, it is used to direct horses when riding. When used for riding, the lead reins are able to give horses small commands such as signalling a turn, slowing the speed of the horse, or to stop or rein back. It can also be used to move the horse in circles for training purposes, or for evaluation by a veterinarian.

At Fylde Saddlery, we offer lead reins in leather, as well as clip ropes and butterfly lead reins. Our leather lead reins also have the option of a Newmarket chain or a solid brass chain. You may also opt for one without a chain, either in smooth leather or plaited, with a choice of width and colours. A butterfly lead rein, on the other hand, is also made from leather and removes the need for couplings. Lastly, our clip ropes come in a range of bright colours, either in two tones or one.

Suitable for leading a small pony or a large stallion, we are sure to have a leading rein to suit you. For more information about our lead reins, please visit our contact page.
