Made from 1" hollow braid waxed nylon rope that is rolled to produce a flat durable rein. Soft and pliable, they will not make your fingers sore because they are not too stiff from over waxing. The hollow braid construction prevents them from curling or twisting. They are 8.5' long and have 3/4" wide 10/11 oz burgundy harness leather water straps on both ends. All leather is dyed for a finished look.
