I sort of get the English method of having students learn, riding a horse on the lunge line, so they don;t use the reins for balance, but then the instructor should be able to keep that hrose going, just like when lunging, LOL!
If you are still wroking on balance, then perhaps staying on the lunge line is a good idea, but if you are at the point where you are ready to learn how to ride a horse, cue him correctly, be a rider and not a passenger,I think it is time to get off that lunge line, JMO
The instructor should then be able to tell you how to use legs and seat effectively, thus actually ride a horse.
