The Role of the Outside Rein

Terry Myers
by Terry Myers

Anyone who has ever ridden with me knows that I preach the importance of the outside rein to the point where my wife says when I die she is going to put on my tombstone ‘More Outside Rein.’ You hear and read about the importance of getting a horse soft in the bridle and giving to the bit laterally. Most people focus on this so much, that they actually get the horse forehand heavy because they never take their training to the next step. Don’t get me wrong, getting a horse that will give to the bit is a very important step in training a horse. Once a horse is soft in their neck and their body (gives the ribcage and you can push the hip to the inside), it’s time to go to the next step…the outside rein.

I wanted to let you know that the subject of my editorial last month, Joey, our rescued Arabian, passed away in the pasture the middle of January. When we found him down on his side, alive but unable to get up, we immediately called our vet. He thinks Joey’s heart may have given out possibly from the neglect he suffered over the years prior to our rescue. Maybe it was his kidneys shutting down from a disease he came to us with, or maybe it was one of a multitude of other reasons. No matter, Joey’s passing hurts just the same, especially after starting to develop a bond with him once he began trusting us. Although Joey left all too soon on a winter’s day, it was one of the warmer ones we’ve seen for a while and the sun was shining brightly while he was in the pasture with his buddies. Our sweet little Joey died with a full belly, his herd gathered round, and the people who loved him by his side.
