I think draw reigns are ok. If the rider tries hard not to become dependent on them and you are careful not to allow your horse to move on his forehand but it's hard. It is REALLY hard to push them forward, but hold them back in a frame, maintain headset consistency. It is not easy to hold them in a frame with loose reigns. Draw reigns are not evil when used properly.......
I agree with this, I use them occasionally depending on the horse, more for a tune-up or whatnot. Just as long as they are used correctly.
