    I just see no need for draw reins. I own a pair know how to use them and have. Just did not see where they help or made anything better or easier then just riding and working the horse correctly to begin with.

    Well there if the OP didn't think that us HFers were______( I can't use the OPers word as it has been moderated out) but lets say that the reference made would be equal to the intelligence level of an earthworm...maybe the posts that followed would have been less snarky.

    Up to that point the main question was why was it needed...which BTW you also asked.

    And the OPers answer to your and the other member's question is they have been riding with it for years and years and years and know everything they are doing.

    Even the top trainers in the world would never claim that title.

    Sorry, Spyder - that post you quoted was worded incorrectly. I should have said "It wasn't the OP's initial post that bothered me, but the following posts she made that were snarky and holier-than-thou."
    My beef is with the OP, not anyone else in this thread. My apologies, that was worded badly, I can definitely see that now!

    I have got to agree with this. Perhaps someone that "loves" to ride with draw reins needs to re-examine how she handles her hands. I have seen some of the best horseman in this country and probably the world ride and not one of them used anything to artificially lower the horses head. They used feel, timing and balance to let the horse find where its head should be.

    I won't have draw reins anywhere near my horses. I've never seen any need what so ever to force my horse into a false outline by winching thier heads in.

    Well, to answer the OP's original question -


    You can place draw reins in two places (one favourably more than the other). Either attatched to the girth inbetween the horses front legs, or attatched to the girth under the saddle flap, so the draw reins would be running from your hand, through the bit, and back over the shoulders and to the girth near the buckles.

    I can't tell anybody to use or not to use draw reins, I personally prefer not to - I'm not against using them in the right hands, but in the end it's all up to the user.

    I agree! I think people who have to use Draw Reins in their daily riding routines, have holes in their education. I also agree with Kevin.

    I'm not sure how to say this without sound like a poop-butt so can I remove my moderator hat for a minute? Just one minute.

    Poop-butts opinion (that's me by the way): The OP should be able to ask a question, ANY question without being "attacked".

    Poop-butts opinion (that's me by the way): Responders should be able to question the OPs reasoning in an appropriate manner without being "attacked".

    Poop-butts opinion (that's me by the way): The reason OP should be able to ask any question is because it's better to ask then to rush through life blind-folded. Responders should be able to question motives and reasoning because this is an internet forum where there is no blanket answer for anyone situation. Giving advice via written response without actual knowledge of a situation could end in a really bad situation - most of our members know that and this is the reasoning behind their questions. They aren't really ATTACKING the OP, they are however asking some pretty pointed questions.

    Also - opinions are allowed on all sides.

    One more thing... Training devices can very quickly become CRUTCHES. I know from experience. It took me a long time to ween myself off my draw reigns and into a german martingale. I'm now in a training fork and hopefully will be ditching that too. If you don't NEED the draw reigns then you really should try something else (that's my though).

    OK - Poop butt putting the hat back on.

    I have some good horse shampoo that gets poop off buts if you would like it.

    I agree with what you said. It is a good thing that people ask questions regardless of what they are. It is also good that people give opinions on both sides of the question. The people who as these questions need to remember they asked.
