Regarding Reins...
I have this thing about my horse stepping on the reins which causes
me to
be afraid to use anything but leather. The best horse I ever had stepped on his
reins once, while walking up a steep hill, I lost MY footing and dropped them.
Thankfully, they broke, as leather-I have heard- is supposed to, and for that I
was most grateful. I just patched them together and they are still in use.
Due to this, I now just about refuse to use reins that are not of
leather, or
don't have leather ends. One of my greatest fears, also, is when I have the
gathered up at a gallop or trot, the hanging loop will catch around my foot???
Any suggestions to avoid this???
