Tri-Colored Split Reins by Whit Olson
These 12 plait split reins measure 8 feet in length and are loaded in the tail for balance. The multi-colored button pattern consist of both onion and walnut dyed calf hide to contrast the natural cowhide body of the reins. The leather bit ends and poppers were hand embroidered in a rope pattern at a rate of 10 stitches per inch.
