    Lots of people in Europe (especially in Germany) use them for riding! I never had to use them personally for riding and I agree with most of the posters, when used correctly they are a good tool while lunging a horse.

    I have seen people riding in them too. There is a very European barn near me and it is quite popular there. Having said that, I don't agree with it at all, and would never try it. There's just too many things I could imagine that could go wrong, and really, if you want that effect while you're riding, there's several other gadgets you could use that would be "safer" than side reins that won't give or release in an emergency.

    It is quite typical (in europe) to see students who might not be able to sustain a horse on the bit to ride in s.r. (in case they drop the contact). They are not tight, but serve to set limits if necessary.

    And when starting a horse they generally first put the sr onto the caveson so the tender mouth is not exposed to any tension, but rather just working in a connection. Then they are changed to the bit. (This can be seen on the tapes from Egon von Neindorff).

    I wouldn't ride in them, ever. Nor will I ride with a martingale, standing or running. A Breastplate is the most I'll use.

    Would you help me if I posted a video of her in them?

    Sure. :)
