How to tie a single-piece rein
on a bosal



Start by finding the center of the rein and bringing
the ends up through the bosal as shown in Image A.




Image B shows what that should look like.
You can tighten this down and it may work great
with some bosal/rein combinations but on others
this knot may slip. In that case, you
should take an extra wrap as shown in Image C.




Bring both ends up below the original knot the finished knot
should look like Image D before you tighten it down.
