Basically, you can let your hands go forward, up and sideways, but never backwards. Any pulling back on the reins and you will be causing blockages and discomfort to your horse.
It didnt take long for my horse to tell me to stop pulling, and im glad he did it makes me a better rider. So I always try and listen to my horse because they have allot to teach me ! More than instructors sometimes.
