Yes!  I agree 100%.  I have Never understood the thought behind
'supporting' the horse with the reins.  I just can't see the mechanics
of it, with you being ON the horse and all!  I have always given my
horse his head when he stumbles and they recover quite well on their own
every time.  As long as you remain balanced in the saddle and don't let
your weight come forward, the horse can take care of himself.
