    Default Dressage rules question

    Silly, but my new set of dressage reins are uber long. Can I tie the ends of them in a knot a'la XC?

    Absolutely not!

    I've done it, doubt the judge even noticed. Better a cute little knot than 2 feet of rein dangling precariously close to your foot.

    You can buy shorter reins also.

    I've got an old pair of really nice plaited reins that got str-echt-ed out like that.

    Sell them to the AQHA folks!! They buy reins made special for their long framed look.

    You can punch another hole, move the buckle up, trim the excess off.
