Reins

Reins serve as one of the main means of controlling the horse. Once on the horse, you should straighten the reins with your hands so that they are not twisted and their inner sides are adjacent to the horse’s neck.

Bridle reins can be taken apart in the hands of several ways: in combat, in racing and in training. In the cavalry, the reins were parsed in a formal manner: the rider’s right hand was easily released for saluting, using a saber or a pike. Racehorse disassemble the reins when riding and overcoming obstacles in the field.
First, learn how to parse them no-training.
This method is used when riding and overcoming obstacles in the arena.

Take the left rein in your left hand and the right rein in your right.
Do not clench the reins in your fist at random. With this analysis, it will be very difficult to control the horse. The rein should go from the trenzelny end along the horse’s neck, enter between the little finger and ring finger of each hand in your fist and go out between the index and thumb.

Reins

Throw forward the loop of the rein, located between the index and thumbs. Keep your fists parallel with your fingernails facing each other. The distance between them should not exceed 10-15 cm. slightly unclench your fists and move your hands forward along the reins.

Now you have shortened the rein too much, so that your arms are almost not bent at the elbows. Disassemble the leash so that the hands are at a height of about 15 cm above the withers. You pulled on the reins and felt the faint resistance of the horse’s metal bit. No more pulling. This tension does not bother the horse, but allows you to have constant contact with its mouth through the bit.

If the leash is disassembled too long, then when it is stretched, the elbows go back, and the correct fit is violated.
