    Comments about Dura-Tech® European Balancing Side Reins:

    The idea behind these are great and I was so excited to try them; however, they were way too big. I have a 15.2 Arabian mare. I would buy again if they offered smaller sizes! I was buying them to use will lunging my horse before I ride her to help warm her up.

      Comments about Dura-Tech® European Balancing Side Reins:

      I use the Duratech European Balancing Side Reins to help balance my horse while lunging to build up his top line. I have seen these side reins help so many horses build up their top line as well as learning self balance. Excellent tool for training. Highly recommend.

        Comments about Dura-Tech® European Balancing Side Reins:

        European balancing reins are hard to find. The only other pair I found was leather (have to be oiled) and twice the price of these. My trainer suggested I get these side reins to help my Third Level dressage horse continue to build muscle and transfer weight to her back legs without having to balance my weight. I live in a hot, humid climate and lunging in these reins is a great workout alternative to riding.

          hard to find but they had them at a good cost much better than a shop on the West coast. Really gets a horse to come thru their top line &work off hindquarters
