Slobber Straps

When you ride with mecate reins you will need some slobber straps to attach the reins to the bit. The purpose is in the name, these leather loops protect your reins from damage. They also signal your horse before the slack comes out of your rein and provide a more clear release of pressure.


Slobber straps come in the traditional type and the "quick change" buckle or tie style to enable swapping bits more quickly without untying the reins.




The mecate or sport reins attach to the slobber straps with a half hitch. The slobber straps can be customized in all sorts of different ways.
