REINS. Two long slips of leather fastened on each side of a curb or snaffle, and the two opposite ends joined, which the rider holds in his hand to keep his horse in subjection. False rein is a strap passed through the arch of the banquet to bend the horse's neck. It is apt to slacken the curb.
Harewood, Harry. A Dictionary of Sports. London: T. Tegg and son, 1835
