Change the direction you are going. You are on the right rein if your horse's right shoulder is to the inside, left rein if the left shoulder is. To "change the rein" one simply switches direction so the opposite shoulder is to the inside. Crossing the diagonal is probably the most common way that people change the rein.

The layout of the circle presumes a 20x40m arena (not a large arena), so ride half the circle in trot, and then pick up the depart.

Change hands means change direction (usually long diagonal).
