Haha I used my leg and she was so confused... why do I keep bouncing off of the wall? So she'd try again.. nope.. eventually it got to be too much work for her so she stopped.
But always open to new ways! Going to watch that movie too!
EDIT: Umm this is kind of embarrassing, but that is how I bailed off of Sky the last near-fall when he blew through my aids and began to attempt to bolt. Except I kept hanging on his neck and dug my feet into the arena sand to give him resistance and he eventually stopped. And I did get back on and school the tar out of his canter. But yeah.. ha
