I've always heard them referred to as a jumping strap. Don't know if that's the actual name though! but i don't use them. I've seen people use their martingales for that as well. I have a friend who-when she goes on trails or out cross country- uses an extra set of reins around her horse's neck. It's something to hold on to, and if she needs an extra set of reins, she's got 'em!
Where there's a bay, there's a way!
