rein

narrow strip of thin leather or other fabric attached to both ends of a bit in a horse's bridle making a loop which passes through the hands of the driver/rider. Used to direct the horse's head and so change its direction.

a fixed rein attached to the saddle or backpad and to the bridle to prevent the horse from lowering its head too far.
check rein

neck rein
not a piece of harness; is the technique in which the rider moves his/her hands to one side of the horse's neck thus touching the horse with the rein on one side of the neck. The well-schooled horse will move in the other direction.
running rein
runs from the rider, through the rings of the bit and back to the girth. For horses in harness is a very powerful restrainer.
side rein
extends on either side from the bit, through rings on a saddle or pad and ends with the driver walking beside the horse. Used in training a horse to cart harness.
