Dear Reader: Ladder Reins

I got a good question from a reader that I thought I’d open up to everyone!

Dear Reader

“I am looking for a demo video on the proper use of ladder reins. Do you have a resource that might help? Thanks!”

My response:

I’ve only used ladder reins for one rider, because she prefers the texture and only uses one hand to steer. The thing to be aware of is that there are lots of loops so watch that no hands or anything gets stuck in them. RDA’s List of Adaptive Saddlery Equipment has some info and pics of ladder reins on page 10 (card 21).
