    Just A Quick Question...

    I've got a pony club gymkhana coming up in a few weeks.
    I've decided to ride my horse in my double bridle.
    I used to use one on my old warmblood sometimes and I've been riding my tb in it recently and he's going well.

    I was told by a judge that most judges don't mind how you hold the reins in hacking classes but they pay attention to the way you hold them and use them in riders classes.

    I was taught:
    Snaffle rein under finger 3
    Curb rein under finger 2
    Both reins held by the thumb

    Is this correct?

    Thanks for the help. It seemed to work because I was one of the 5 riders picked to do a workout out of 30 other riders.
