The instructor did a neat little rein exercise where she had me "ride" while the she held the reins by Mia's head. She showed me how it felt as we were going up to and over a fence, both when I held contact and when I gave it away. VERY interesting! I have always given plenty of rein over the fence as to not jab the horse in the mouth, it feels much worse than keeping contact. There is contact, then none, and then I have to pull over the fence to get the contact back. Very cool exercise, I guess now I need work on that too.
