Okay, so I've been experimenting with bits and reins lately and I've found that I like riding with my rope reins with slobber straps better than the reins on my english bridle. The reason being is that they are heavier. On another forum someone described it like this: And that really fits what I am finding! So.../I/ don't mind riding with slobber straps and rope reins, but I don't think that's going to fly with my dressage instructor or if I actually managed to go to a show someday. So, my question, are there any english reins out there that would give you more of that "feel" you can get from a more western styled rein?
