Draw Reins for Horses
Draw reins can be used to help train your horse to go in the correct outline and to encourage straightness. A draw rein is a great training aid when used correctly and if new to using draw reins we recommend asking an experienced equestrian on your yard to help you use them for the first time. Harry Hall offers a Caldene leather draw rein that is durable and can be wiped clean as well as a soft webbing version from Cottage Craft. Both styles of draw rein are fitted by looping the end of the draw rein over the girth. Draw reins are used to encourage the horse to lower its head and learn to maintain a correct, light contact whilst still moving forward freely into the bridle.
Draw reins should not be used in place of reins and a light contact should be maintained on the draw rein with the primary reins keeping the main connection with the horse’s mouth. We recommend using draw reins when the horse is being ridden. The draw reins available at Harry Hall are easy to fit and the clip fastenings on the leather Caldene draw reins allow for easy fitting, quick release and poll attachment.
