OP how old are you, and what breed is the horse?
When you say that the grass reins snapped, where you using baling twine or shop-bought grass reins?
This information would be useful to help you more.
Apart from that, as has been said you should yank his head up with one rein rather than struggling pulling at two. And you need to be more pro-actively looking ahead for nice patches of grass and tightening your grip on the reins to prevent it happening. But depending on the answer to my first question, I appreciate that you might not have the strength to do that successfully.
Get up, get going, seize the day. Enjoy the sunshine, the rain, cloudy days, snowstorms, and thunder. Getting on your horse is always worth the effort.
