Frequently asked questions about Draw Rein
Why do you use draw reins?
The draw rein is a pair of auxiliary reins, attached to the girth via the bit between the horse’s front legs, to prevent the animal from holding its head too far up. Dressage horses are sometimes forced to keep their heads down in this way, in a curl.
How do you attach a draw rein?
A draw rein can be attached to the side or bottom of your girth. To attach a girth rein to the girth, the girth must have attachment rings. It is also possible to lunge with a girth rein. We have several brands such as QHP and E-Tech. The rein is only an aid for horseback riding.
How long is a draw rein?
The leather gaiter is primarily suitable for lunging and is attached to the lunging girth. At the saddle, the 2.25 m long reins are tied laterally to the girth.
How do you clean draw reins?
Before polishing, clean the reins with a slightly damp cloth. If the reins are filthy, you can clean them with lukewarm water and a soft sponge before polishing. If necessary, use some saddle soap. Where possible, take the reins apart, so it can be cleaned and treated properly.
