Getting a horse use to the commands again.
I'm help my friend get his horse back into "shape". In other words we are starting to work her a again. From what i understand she is really rusty on the vertical. I need to know, which is the best length of rein to have, i do not ride split reined.
I like my reins longer, so when we are stopped i can let my horse eat without having to lean up out of the saddle, and sometimes the horn jabbing into to me.
I ride western if that makes any difference. But like i said, i have never measured the reins i use, because i dont own my own horse. I work for people.
Any input is helpful.
