If you're wanting to get into dressage I would not use a weighted romel. I have those training reins and hardly ever use them, I've found many horses respond better to not having the weight. The weights do 2 things, they steady the reins so they don't flop around when you're riding (good) and they can really cause a bit to become a lot harsher than it would be alone, especially with a heavy handed rider(bad). If you can plant your hand over the horses withers/saddle horn and use only your legs and seat for cues, then they're fine. If you have to use the reins/bit because your horse gets spooked or acts up, you're reaction can go from mild (unweighted reins) to really harsh (the heavier the rein the more harsh the bit will be if you get wild with your hands). IMO, if you're not training to show WP competitively, I wouldn't use these reins.
