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.
