As you can see, he has the two normal reins and then one extra rein attached to the side, tied to the horn. I'm not going to attach my make-shift rein to his hack though because I don't want extra pressure from the shanks. I'm going to leave on a halter, clip the lead rope to the halter on the bottom and tie it. That way, he'll feel the extra nudge to stop but it won't hurt.
Plus, I found a green rein missing a clip on the other side that I never got around to fixing, it's long, it's soft, it matches my tack...I think yes.
Hopefully it'll work, mom is excited to try it out and see how he does with it!
On another note, Red is officially being bugged again and his tail is going bald. :/ Right in time for the barn party, when I was excited to show off my horse, because of course. I ordered a tail wrap for him and then bought that sleazy the other day for his mane, just in case. The tail wrap took up all of my money that was for a new bridle, but oh well.
Horses are expensive, y'all. Turns out they aren't like big dogs. ;)
