    I use Oscar's long mane all the time when jumping. I usually grab a lump in each hand.

    I mean use a neck strap to stop the horse not to help keep your balance when on top

    Although it would be useful for that purpose too but instad of pulling on the reins with my youngster I pull on the neck strap and he sdtops dead in his tracks

    no i wouldnt use one like that i dont think. i dont pull on the reins anyway, i will use my legs and seat (and voice on a baby), and a slight feel on the reins, which i wouldnt describe as a pull, and they learn very quickly.

    I wouldn't use it as a pressure aid, most of mine are driven so I don't want them reacting when a collar comes into play. Seat first if you are riding, voice for driving.

    I can understand it would be no use if your horse was being broken for driving

    I wouldnt 'pull' either, guess I used the wrong word.

    I never have ridden with one, but after last nights episode where my bridle snapped and I had no reins, it would have come in handy! Luckily, I live to tell the tale lol...

    May purchase one now... "Just in case"
