OKay so I was wondering when you fall off do you hold the reins or let go? I watch english riders on youtube(not saying all english riders do this and I have NOTHING against english riders)and 99% of the time when they fall they hold the reins with a death grip and a lot of the western riders (again not saying all western riders) that I see let go of the reins as they are falling. Is it an english thing? The way a person is taught to ride? Personal preference?
I was always taught to let go of the reins so you don't accidently pull the horse onto you when you fall.
Again not trying to offend anyone western and english riders alike I would just like to know.
