So my friend told me about her ride yesterday. She was riding in the rink and used running reins to correct something (I'm not sure what). She decided to take them out, and some girl offered to help her, assuring that she knew what she was doing. Wanting to be nice, my friend let her. Well, somehow, this little girl managed to detach the reins instead, and just got them out as a crack of thunder came. The horse reared up and started freaking out, and my friend had no reins whatsoever. She managed to calm him down with her seat, but This makes me ask the question: why did this girl claim to know what she was doing when she obviously didn't?
