Side Reins: Mechanism of training and support of the vaulting horse.
 
Often I am asked what number (or how short) do I want the side reins?
 It’s a simple question that requires multi-layered answers.  
 
The placement of the side reins in my opinion depends on series of questions I ask myself.
  • Where the horse is in his training? What level of collection?
  • What support does the horse need? How much self carriage?
  • What frame can the horse comfortably carry? What is the horse stamina and fitness level.
