Reins

2555 Views 4 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  princesshoagie
The bridle that came with my girl came with some standard black English reins. They are too short though, the ends of the reins stick out maybe an inch from my hand. Do I need to buy reins that specifically state they are "draft" reins, or do I just need to buy longer reins? How do you measure for reins? This is my first horse and my first tack, so I hope I don't sound like an idiot!!

You might look for reins that are specially designed for draft horses. There are several good draft tack websites. To find out the minimum length you need, you can take a piece of rope and tie it to the bit on each side, adjusting until it is a comfortable length then measure the rope.
