My daughter who's just a beginner, switched from an "eventing" barn to a "reining" barn.
Her new instructor demonstrated what she could do on her horse, and through the entire routine her head was almost hanging down. She never raised her eyes, even, except for when she passed a window and glanced out.
I'm new to this, and in her old barn it was all "eyes up eyes up eyes up."
What's that all about? Is it a different style?
