Different types of reins
The rein is of course one of the most important parts in the communication between you and your horse. Not only do you use it to give instructions to your horse, but with reins you also make sure that the horse uses his back better. By nature, a horse leans more on its front legs. By ensuring that a horse's balance is distributed over all four legs, the horse is better able to carry the rider. There are different types of reins for each discipline.
Dressage is all about the refined communication with your horse. If you leave the reins too long or if they shift in your hands, this can cause unclear signals to the horse. That is why it is quite important that you are able to hold these reins well in your hand. In doing so, you also want to maintain an accurate position of the hands, without exerting much force on the reins. Of course, this also makes for a much more comfortable ride.
Jumping reins differ little from normal reins. However, they are usually equipped with stops, so that the rider has extra grip. For riding with a martingale there are martingale stops on these reins, these are made to prevent the martingale from getting stuck behind the buckles of your reins.
Next to these specific reins you can look for very specific reins you like to ride with. Think for example of anti-slip reins, web reins, rubber or braided reins. The width of the rein can also make a big difference depending on the size of your hands and what you like.
In addition to these reins you can use extra training reins to make riding easier for both rider and horse. For example, a martingale is used a lot when jumping and you can use draw reins when training your horse. Is your saddle not always properly seated or does it move while riding? Then you can make sure it stays in place with the help of a breastplate. All these aids can be found in our range.
