New Alice Reins Double Reins For The Disabled Rider And Those With Poor Grip

Here they are! Our New Alice Reins Double Reins!


We have had many people ask if we could design a pair of double Alice Reins.  One of our riders had already purchased a pair of Alice Reins and asked us this:

“Please would you make me a set so I can use his double bridle for when we compete BD elementary and coloured classes ??? Can this be done ?”

It all started like this….

Hi Jacqui,
Last year in November I had an accident, stupid really,  I slipped getting out of my truck put my hand out to grab the fence and missed.  Resulting in a snapped left thumb and ulna collateral ligament.
I was operated on the following day and had mitek bone anchors screwed in.
I spent 13 weeks in a cast and have it fused in a ‘ wine glass ‘ position.  Which unfortunately leaves me with very little grip. I have a Bauerfeind splint to wear to protect it.

I was given the go ahead by my orthopaedic surgeon to ride, because I nagged him! But yesterday I took my youngster up the mountain and discovered quickly that I couldn’t stop as I had no grip, how stupid was I! Anyway my husband was reading the BD forum and discovered your company so by having a loop I can pull with my fingers.
So hopefully you will be able to help me,  I next need to apply to BD to be able to use them.

Regards Paula

Paula was thrilled with her first Alice Reins and had this to say:

Hi there,

Well it’s been a month or so ago since I purchased the Alice Reins and thought now was a good time to report back.
You may remember we chatted about my injury (snapped thumb and Ulna Collateral Ligament) that required surgery to fuse with mitek bone anchors leaving my thumb in a ‘wine glass’ position with no grip.
Well I can honestly say what a marvellous set of reins! They are lovely quality and I like the fact you can personalise them. Just the correct length and fully adjustable.
This morning I took my youngster Red pictured below for a long hack with several other horses, exciting times!
I must admit I was a little concerned when they cantered I would have little control, I needn’t of worried … I had full control it was easy to switch to the shorter loop and managed to keep an even contact, even being brave enough to pop a small log!
So thank you Jacqui for all your help. My outhopedic surgeon Mr Rogers has written an email for British Dressage for a dispensation which is being sorted so I will be out competing again soon.
Please would you make me a set so I can use his double bridle for when we compete BD elementary and coloured classes ??? Can this be done ?

Kind Regards
Mrs Paula Joyce. & Red xx

Alice Reins at the Mercury Business AwardsNominated at Mercury Business Awards

Alice and I were thrilled to find out that not only had we been nominated and put forward for an award at the Mercury Business Awards. We were nominated by Michelle Jones at Ketchup Marketing, who designed our website and helped launch Alice Reins. We were also shortlisted and invited to attend the award dinner.
How wonderful! Both Alice and I were both excited and nervous as this was the very first event of this nature we had ever attended.

We savoured every moment of it and thoroughly enjoyed a first class 3 course meal.Award Winning Alice Reins at the Mercury Business Awards

It soon came around for the presentation of our category. All nominees for this were showcased and I remember thinking where did they get the footage! Melvyn Prior of BBC Radio Lincolnshire was our host and when it was announced that the WINNER of Business Innovation 2015 was….ALICE REINS! We were totally shocked!

The whole evening was amazing and overwhelming. We felt very honoured to have received this award and would like to thank all who were involved from the bottom of our hearts. There were some other amazing winners on the evening, and we were up against some really tough competition. This made winning even better!
