The training aids on Beamer are a surcingle and side reins. They are to help aid her into the bit and encourage her to use her topline muscles so that she can carry herself better in the show ring and hold her frame more easily. As you can see the side reins are fairly loose on her so that instead of forcing her head down and tucked they are simply encouraging her to tuck it, if she decided that she did not want to move in frame with the side reins than she could. You never want to force them, merely ask and encourage.

The surcingle just goes around her girth area as a girth does and then the side reins clip onto each side of the surcingle as well as each side of the bit. They are not all that expensive and can be bought at most places that sell horse tack.
