רוכב ברה"ר (Bava Metzia 9b)

The Gemara says that someone who rides an animal in the רה"ר is קונה in certain circumstances. The Gemara says that the case is מנהיג ברגליו meaning that the קנין is משיכה. Both the קצות and רעק"א ask that the din is that משיכה does not work ברה"ר it only works in a סימטא or צידי רה"ר, if so how can the rider here be קונה in the רה"ר with a קנין משיכה?
