Where to Hold the Reins in 2 Point Position


Another great free video tidbit from ANRC Level 5 Rider, National Judge, and Steward Susan Deal! Often new riders need a guide in order to adjust the reins to the appropriate length.  This quick tip shows how strategically placed knots in the reins can be an invaluable tool to instill the proper feel of hand/mouth connection. These knots can replace colored reins when showing or hunting and also give a rider something to hold on to to keep them from slipping.
