Julie Goodnight Announces Goodnight Rope Reins

PONCHA SPRINGS, Colo. November 7, 2008— Julie Goodnight’s custom-designed rope reins give the feel of popular rope mecates without complicating knots to tie. The 10-foot, marine-quality rope reins sell for $59.95 and are available now. Goodnight also announces special discount packages (including the reins) just in time for Christmas shopping. See the new reins and all the product combinations at: http://juliegoodnight.com/products.html

Goodnight says she designed the reins for rider’s comfort, ease of use and control. The reins are made from the same high-quality rope used in Goodnight’s Rope Couture lead ropes—the soft weave and oval shape conforms perfectly to rider’s the hands and is easy to grip; the smooth outer rope makes adjusting the reins easy and aids in better communication with your horse. The heavy weight of the rope gives the rider a steady feel. The center marker, made of contrasting braided cord, helps riders keep the reins even and allows them to shorten and lengthen reins easily then return to a typical and even rein length. Spliced connectors give a perfect weight and drape to the rein to maximize feel; horses receive a pre-signal whenever the rein is moved slightly. The unique and stylish quick connectors are braided from cord and make attaching the reins to any bit a breeze. Handcrafted in the USA, these reins come in five colors: tan, black, turquoise, green and raspberry.

“After thirty years of teaching and training, I’ve seen what riders need to help ride with better hands and what horses need from their riders to be more comfortable and do their jobs well,” Goodnight says. “My custom designed single-loop rope reins are the perfect length for most horses and styles of riding. Plus, the design helps riders handle their reins more effectively and develop a soft feel. The weight and quality of the marine rope gives riders a perfect feel and the unique quick-connectors are stylish and easy to use and also enhance the feel in the horse’s mouth. It gives the horse the ability to respond to a pre-signal. With a high demand from our customers for a rein made from the same rope as my popular training leads—a rope I looked long and hard to find—I am really excited about the great feedback we’re already getting.”

Goodnight’s Rope Reins are included in several of the discount packages designed for easy Christmas gift giving. Goodnight rounded up the most popular educational and tack tools and grouped them to make shopping easy. Choose from packages for the Fit Rider (to help you keep in shape through the winter months), the Equipment Junkies (including the most popular training tools), Winter Workshop (to help you work with your horse—even if riding isn’t an option), and Arena Workouts (giving you a fresh list of techniques to practice so you’ll be ready for next spring’s show season). Each package is priced lower than if you were to buy each item separately.
