Split or straight (single) reins, which do you like? Why? Is it better to use one over the other?
I use either a cotton single contest rein or a single nylon. I'm trying to decide if I should also try a split for turn control. Personally, I tend to hate split because I never know what to do with the knot. If the reins are long, I get the knot caught on everything, but all of our school horses have split.
