I have a set of the long tailing biothane reins. I cut them in half to
add a brass ring in the center for a rommel (sp). I folded the ends
over at the ring and tightly wrapped them with black electrical tape. Looks fine and doesn't gum up like duct tape. Also, it should break apart
if the horse steps on it. (or I, Heaven forbid, become entangled while
in unplanned dismount! <g>)
