My reins are one piece 10 foot, with screw lock o rings, so they double as a lead line, tie line, lunge line when needed, unclip them from the bit, clip em to the halter.
Depends on the horse though. I think walking slow down the trail does more good with him, he's just gotten in too good a shape for running in circles to phase him much. He speaks with a french accent like those dudes in the castle in MOnty Pythons search for the Holly Grail,
While lungiing in fast circles, Bo tells me ,
"I fart in your general direction, you english Kaaaaa nig hit "
"Come back here and I shall taunt you a second time"
Now ****it on the other hand hated running, a few laps at a run/walk would straighten him right out..
You're right. You gotta know which buttons to push.
