Auxiliary reins for horses

To support the horse and rider's training, auxiliary reins can be used in certain stages. In general, the most commonly used auxiliary reins are the side reins and the draw Reins. The side rein consists of two simple, narrow straps. At one end of the auxiliary rein there are buckles or a carabiner to attach the rein to the bridle ring of the bits. The other end can be attached to the girth or lunging girth. Simple leather buckles are suitable for riding with auxiliary reins, but carabiners are better for lunging with auxiliary reins, as they can be quickly hooked onto the lunging girth and buckled on. 

Correctly attaching a horse's auxiliary rein

No matter whether you are using side reins for shetties, lunging a young horse with side reins or riding with side reins, you always attach the side reins so that your horse's forehead to nose line remains at or in front of the vertical. They are fastened to the girth at the level of the nose joint, making sure they cannot slip up or down. 

Different types of side reins

The most common type of side reins for ponies and horses is a leather one, but there are also rubber reins and webbing ones. Reins with rubber rings and rubber side reins are also known as elastic horse side reins. They have the advantage that they allow a gentler contact with the horse. Nevertheless, with elastic inserts there is always the danger that the horse will lean on the rein. This counteracts the effect of the reins, as the horse does not get to carry itself and walks more on the forequarters. 

Have a look around and discover the different types of auxiliary reins. Whether you are looking for draw reins, loop reins or martingales, at horze you will find them all from top brands such as Karlslund, Kavalkade or Kincade
