staying on the right rein…

I was taught this by my very wise dressage trainer, and it’s stood me in very good stead so far.
When you first get on, particularly on a sharp young horse with its back up, stay on the right rein until you are absolutely sure it has totally settled, then think about changing the rein to the left.
Most horses are left sided and therefore they are far less likely to muck around and turn it into a rodeo show if in right bend on the right rein. It sounds weird, but it works… so far, anyway!
