just another junior wanting to go pro with an affinity for sassy mares, sonic drinks, and winning.
I don't know how to 'ride' without my reins (turning and stopping mostly) any tips to help combat this?
Use your seat! To slow down or stop, sit up and back and close your thighs gradually. For turning put on your inside leg and outside seatbone and a well schooled horse will bend around your leg. Hope I could help! :)
