You know that feeling that you have in your hand at that exact moment that your horse is on the bit, in balance, over his back, all of those dressage-y terms that we all only sort of understand?
…and then you lose your grip or open your fingers slightly, and it all disappears. Your horse is back to being a giraffe watching planes in the sky.
I’m not saying there are reins that can fix you riding, but there are reins that can prevent that slippage from occurring – both with movable rein stoppers, and a grip that, in a way, holds your hand. And they’re so far removed from the gross, stiff, rope-feeling reins that we all despise, that y
ou can comfortably ride with these reins sans gloves, and your hands will not be the slightest bit calloused at the end of the ride.
