Re: [RC] [RC] MY Million Pines Story - Tina Hicks

Angie, were the reins all one piece? or did they have a buckle or some
breakable part? I've never really like the idea of continuous, one-piece
reins for lots of reasons - this just adds to that :)

I wonder, in this case, if the reins had broken so the 
bridle fell off the horse, maybe the blind panic would have been 
prevented. Sure the horse would have been nekkid :) but maybe some of the 
risk would have been diminished.

Tina - whose one piece reins endurance were taken to a leather shop years 
ago to have a breakable buckle installed.

Actually, the incident did make me realize something I may be doing
wrong. I've always put the reins around my horse's neck while taking off
his halter & putting on the halter bridle. After seeing how badly the bit
hitting the legs paniced that horse I will now use a lead rope instead to
hold him. A loose horse with no bit hitting the legs wouldn't have been
so paniced.  Live and learn.
