Well said. I have no idea what you posted actually is. I have never seen them. If you dont use draw reins, why use them in the first place? why use something else you arent familiar with and NO I dont would not recommend making your own riding gear, especially if its something you dont how to use.

ive seen the ultimate draw reins used in driving, they have a pully, with just a string going through it as the rein goes up it hooks to a rein. It puts more pressure on the horses mouth and is easier to work in for you adleast. ive seen them a couple of times in riding, but mostly we use them for driving or long lineing.
in my opinion i think you should look into a german. they have a good effect like those draw reins, but if you've never used draw reins before these will help you not to pull too much on the horese mouth. it gives you room for mistake and them. its just a way better way to get a head set without the chance of flipping the horse over. (i no ive been on one that has)in a way they are good, but i would recomend you start with German Martingale & Reins. it looks like this

Ha ha ha ha. Draw reins are draw reins. There is no way those will help keep your horse "soft in the mouth". I know people who have those. Does the complete opposite. Just try regular draw reins

I am beginning to not like draw reins, which in my case is big. I am OCD about head set. Ask Harlee she will tell yah ;] But they have your horse work off the forehand. Yuck. Nah, i think i am going to find a way to teach head set without draw reins.

yea i dont like them much either, thats why I said try the german. It's not draw reins, its just like useing any other kind of martingale. but for when useing draw reins the horse isn't so heave on the bit. germans can do that, but you can work a horse off that.
