Balance Rein - Braided
This style of the TTouch® Balance Rein is made by braiding a driving line. It's use is the same as with the second style we offer. The Balance Rein is like a "necklace" or a second rein at the base of the neck that rebalances a horse.
It is used with a bridle for horses who have a tendency to come above the bit or behind the vertical, in combination with a snaffle or the TTouch® Training bit. The Balance Rein collects the horse and keeps him in a state of balance. The Balance Rein also invites horses to bring their backs up, to lengthen and to round the neck. The Balance Rein comes with a string called a "grazing string." Tie it to a ring on the saddle. In case you are NOT holding the Balance Rein and your horse puts his head down to "graze" or scratch his nose, the Balance Rein will not slide off. Attached with a toggle slide, the string is easily removed from the Balance Rein.
