What is your opinion on rubber reins? I usually ride in the laced kind only, but these rubber ones are available to me easier, than buying an expensive pair of laced.

well it depends on if you are going to be showing. rubber reins don't look great in the hunter ring but if they are just for schooling they should be fine. i have found that i get blisters from them without gloves but some people don't.
They are okay but the are sometimes really thick and hard to hold. They also can get really sticky.
They are nice but they get sticky and melt
Rubber reins are great and I prefer them, but I absolutely hate it when they get sticky and melt
I personally like rubber reins bc they give me a better grip😊
Edgewood makes awesome rubber reins (and I typically don't like rubber). D'yon also makes nice ones. My pet peeve is when clients get cheap ones and they get sticky or even start to melt in the heat and I have to ride in them, so I'd get quality ones.
I've been riding with rubber reins for 3 months are they are great ! Super comfortable.
I love Rubber reins! Especially in the summer when I don't feel like wearing gloves!
I love them! I haven't had any tearing problems with mine. I feel they have great grip!
Thete nice, buy the heavier thicker ones= better durability and wear!
I love them, I only use rubber reins now
Obviously, rubber reins have a better grip. I like them myself but some people feel that they are a bit heavy. They also tear a bit easier if the rubber isn't thick. So when I but new rubber reins, I like to make sure its good quality. Overall I like them.
I really only ever ride in rubber reins and I keep my grips almost always as long as I'm paying attention (lol). My one problem is that if you have a heavy puller on the other end they show wear and tear faster than leather.
There relly good and help you get better contact and your less likely to lose your reins that way
They are alright but I still prefer leather
They work fine for me:)
