Alice Reins – An Excellent Training Aid

About Alice Reins - Image of Alice Reins on HorseThese reins would be an ideal teaching aid for young children, or novice riders of all ages. They are fixed in the correct individual contact for walk, trot and canter.

Younger children who have not yet realised their strength, would especially appreciate Alice Reins. They would find it much easier to control and/or turn their pony/horse.

The pony/horse would find it extremely difficult to pull the reins through the hands of their young rider and run off with them to pastures new!

The original Alice Reins were designed by myself for my daughter Alice who was born with just one functional hand so that she would be able to realise her dream and ride a pony.
