Proper Use of Draw Reins
I have always been told to set up draw reins by clipping them to the center of the girth between the horses front legs, then through the bit, and then up to my hands. I always do it this way. But a new girl (Who I absolutely cannot stand... she knows everything, like shes practically God *rolls my eyes*) corrected me on their use. She told me to attach them to the girth at the buckles, then to the bit, and then up to my hands, so that they are on the outside, not going between the legs. I have always known this to just make the horse bring in his head to his chest, not to stretch down. I also believe it makes them heavier on the hands. Am I correct??? If not I'd actually like to know, if I am, well I'll be happy doing what I always do.
