Can someone explain to me
What draw reins are used for? Can you provide me with a correct example of how they are supposed to be used?
There are a few people at my stable that sometimes hack in them, but to me, it doesn't look correct. I just see a bunch of horses travelling around on their forehand with their heads tucked in.
Please! Someone enlighten me!
To the best of my knowledge, it's a training aid. This is the best I found on it.
Using Draw Reins and Side Reins
Draw reins and running reins - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
This is a really great article on Draw Reins:
::: Sustainable Dressage - Tack & Auxillary Equipment - Gadgets & Auxiliary Equpiment :::
It's a useless gadget in my opinion. If a horse is truly coming through from behind, it becomes light on the forehand and the head does not need to be held in position by a piece of unforgiving leather. I hate those things...can you tell? (hee hee) If I see someone using draw reins, I have no choice but to assume front to back riding.
^ I disagree, I have seen many people use the for other things rather then keeping a horses head down constantly, haha a gadget with many uses!
