Like others have said this is something that just depends on the person. They each have their own advantages. I personally like split reins. I like how they're long, I use the 8ft ones, but you can also shorten them if need be. I use them for pretty much everything. The only time I use continuous reins is when I do gymkhana. One thing you need to be careful of if you do decide to use continuous reins is that they're long enough. If they're too short you will be needing to lean forward to use them and you don't want to get into the habit of that.
