The Practical Horseman Podcast
On this week’s episode, German riding instructor Ronny Riemer explains rein connection. He clarifies that a loose rein is not a hanging or loopy rein, because that allows the bit to bounce in the horse’s mouth, causing irritation. Rather, a loose rein means a soft hand that maintains connection to the horse’s mouth.
The Practical Horseman podcast features conversations with respected riders, industry leaders and horse care experts to inform and inspire listeners. Co-hosted by Practical Horseman editors Sandra Oliynyk, Emily Daily and Jocelyn Pierce.
