These Santa Ynez romal reins are braided
from black and red kangaroo and kangaroo rawhide. The reins are
4 strands of 4 plait coming together on the bit end in 16 plait.
The romal is 16 plait.
It is pictured with a circa 1960's Visalia
bit, Elko style headstall and braided curb strap. The step by
step process of braiding these Santa Ynez romal reins will be
featured in our new book, "The
Art of Braiding, Romal II". This book will cover making
the Elko style headstall, braided curb strap along with other
braided items. "Romal II" will also include more
instructions on new buttons.
