Donut reins are a great training tool for high head carriage.
This popular training aid lets the rider apply direct rein pressure to help the horse maintain light contact with the bit while moving freely in the bridle. Especially effective on horses with high head carriage, or tightness in the back muscles, the sliding effect of these leather reins at the bit ring produces a steady contact and a calmer, rounder, more relaxed horse.
Wipe with damp sponge to clean. Use leather cream for cleaning and care.

Convenient to work on the cord, "replace" the rider's hands. Good workmanship.
I ordered these side reins in full size, but they were just a little too short for my 17.2hh, long-necked Trakehner gelding. I would love if these were made available in an oversize option for those of us that have bigger horses, as they seem to be well made and have just the right amount of give in the rubber donut. Even with a longer set of side reins, I would probably add another set of clips to the girth ends of these for quick on and off without having to fumble with or lose the leather keepers.
Good clamping straps with good elasticity and appear to be of durable quality.
The buckles that are fastened in the bite bend over after 10 minutes of use on a horse that goes straight down on the reins and pulls minimally and is now useless .. Not recommended! :(
I've only tried them once but they are way too short despite it being a full one. It is even a small short horse.
