Ok -I must just have short arms,  cause I think I am reaching down my rein for a turn but I end up in the middle!  Any tips / tricks to reaching down the rein. I know knots but I don't feel them in a run. Ready to buy arm extensions!!!

I have long arms for my height and still do this on occasion. If I do it more than once I make myself drop my eyes (not head) and watch my hand and where I pick up the rein. That usually works for about a seasons worth of runs. I also do a lot of body-arm-forward moves in my workouts to make sure the proper reaching is not hurting and is easier.

I am a visual person so when I was trying to adjust where I was grabbing my reins, I would tie a brightly colored ribbon in a bow in the spot I wanted to grab. I would glance down to make sure I grabbed where I wanted to plus the flash of color was a reminder to get my hands in proper position.

This is an excellent idea too!
