When I'm riding equatation, I have one hand on the reins, held just in front of my saddle horn and neck rein.
When I'm working my horse, my hands are all over the place, I often use two hands (western... I ride in snaffles).
I am really bad about switching my hands on the reins as well. When I canter to the left, I'll hold the reins in my right hand. When I reverse and canter to the right, I'll switch the reins to my left hand. Terrible habit, but I do it at home all the time.
