The Technique You May Not Know for Emergencies (not a one-rein stop)

One of the most widely taught emergency techniques can be very dangerous. 

The truth is that this technique does have it’s place, and it can be effective done well. But doing it well is very difficult, especially if you aren’t a very experienced rider. 

And when it’s not done well, this popular technique can cause, instead of prevent, an accident. 

The technique I am referring to is the one rein stop, often taught as the go to for stopping a runaway. 

Today, I want to show you something different, a technique that can help to balance both you and your horse and give you control in an emergency. 

As good riders, we want to work with our horses in ways where a runaway is never triggered, where our horses can stay calm and we can use light subtle cues. But being prepared to handle emergencies is not only for our safety, but for the safety of our horse as well. 

Being very strong and assertive in a moment may prevent an accident that could be traumatic for you and your horse. 

Watch the video below for a demonstration of this new technique – the “pulley rein.”
