A lugging pole is similar to a Rein Pole, but it runs from the pole halter and fixes to the saddle with the use of a Headpole Strap. It is used to prevent the horse turning his head to one side. If a horse is turning his head to the off side, then the pole is placed to the left. Occassionaly a horse will turn his head to one side on the bend and the other side in the straight. In this case, a horse might wear two lugging poles - one on each side.
