I regularly contribute articles on jumping and gridwork to Your Horse magazine and have now written 3 books. My new book Better Jumping has recently been released and is available from all good book shops or direct from www.halebooks.com.
I have successfully competed, and for more than 30 years I have trained horses and riders of all abilities. During that time I have tried all the various training aids that have been produced. Some work for a while, some don't work at all, the others are so complicated that you need an expert to adjust them correctly.
My Bridging rein is different, it is so simple, yet it has made a vast and immediate improvement to every rider who has used it. It is definitely not a gadget. You are always holding the rein as normal, and there is no restraining action on the horse.
