Neck reining as a 2nd language.
As an english rider, entering the western world, I felt awkward riding with one hand. So, like many riders, I’d train at home with two hands and hope that I’d be able to pull it off with one hand in the show ring! Very bad plan…
French immersion students rise above their French-class-only friends by operating in the language every day, in every class.
Similarly, discipline yourself to ride only with one hand every time you choose a curb bit. Before long you and your horse will become fluent.
