Glad you were not more hurt too! I ride on a long rein all the time. The thing we love about riding bikes over horses is their free will. You just need to be on it, in a moments notice, I am a stressed kind of person, my Hubby is on a 3 second chilled out delay. You need to just be on it and seeing it as soon as something goes a bit off and be able to react.
