When they are used correctly, draw (or running) reins can be a beneficial
schooling aid. They should only be used as a guide to your horse, to make
him do what you wish, not what you want. The idea is to ask the horse to
lower his head, and then, when he is in a position to carry himself, to
give with the reins. If you use them to try and hold the horse down, you
are back to square one as soon as they are taken off. As soon as possible,
the horse should go back into an ordinary bridle. They should be used with
feeling, not force.
