Split reins...are the ties supposed to hang out?

I'm showing this Saturday, and trying Western Pleasure for the first time. Are the ties on the reins (the part where a Chicago screw would be) supposed to hang out? If not, what do you do with them?

Riders aren't 16 and pregnant. Riders are 16 and arthritic.

I think you mean waterloop ties. I wouldn't think that most judges would even notice, especially at open shows, or that if they did they would knock you for it. If anything, you're using something OTHER than scissor clips, which put you at risk of losing a rein under certain circumstances. While window shopping I've never seen show reins with waterloops, but I used a lot of clean, well fitting basic tack at my last show and it didn't seem to make too much of a difference. (To be fair though, my horse is NOT bred for WP so I'm sure that had way more to do with our standings! )

Ties go to outside, if that is what you are asking, and not really noticeable from that far away anyway, if you are doing WP like our barn does.

Horses make me a better person.

Mine are tied to the outside. There is no rule either way.
