Citaat:(e) Whenever this handbook refers to romal, it means an
extension of braided material attached to closed reins. This extension
shall be carried in the free hand with a 16-inch (40 cm) spacing
between the reining hand and the free hand holding the romal.
When using romal reins, the rider’s hand shall be around the reins
with the wrists kept straight and relaxed, the thumb on top and
the fingers closed lightly around the reins. When using a romal,
no fingers between the reins are allowed. The free hand may be
used to adjust the riders length of rein while working except in
reining and working cow horse (reined work). During reining and
working cow horse (reined work) use of the free hand while holding
the romal to alter the tension or length of the reins from the
bridle to the reining hand is considered to be the use of two hands
and a score of 0 will be applied, with the exception of any place a
horse is allowed to be completely stopped during a pattern.
(f) The romal shall not be used forward of the cinch or to signal
or cue the horse in any way. Any infraction of this rule shall be
penalized severely by the judge.
