rope around neck for a handle

Is there an actual name for the piece of rope that goes around the neck of a horse to hang onto just incase you drop your reins? I think jumpers use them sometimes to hang onto instead of pulling on the bit to keep balanced?

Everybody I've ever seen with a neck strap uses an old stirrup leather.

A monkey strap? That's what's sometimes hooked onto the front of an English saddle for new riders to grab if they need to.....

This is a monkey strap:

They're usually made of leather, but I couldn't find any pics of a leather one on a saddle surprisingly

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!

I use an old stirrup leather around my pony's neck when I ride bareback
