    It is generally considered a no no to ride in side reins as the rider cannot "give" to the horse when necesssary. I have seen riding schools use them in this manner but more as a protection for the horse against a beginners unstable hand.

    Farmpony............................. these are called auxillary or running reins.
    Useful in the right hands but do require a knowledgeable rider/trainer when using them.

    If he is not giving to the side reins while lunging I would just tighten them until he does, he may not like it at first but you will have to work through it. Do not ride with side reins, that is not a good idea and it can be very dangerous. As I saw someone mention draw reins may be good but I wouldnt use them regularly because your horse may become dependent on them.
