    I used to rein quite a bit so I'm familiar with roll backs. The horse I'm working with now is a gorgeous polish Arab, by my typical reining horse ( I know arabs can rein, no debates please). I'm sure he will do a couple roll backs each ride, thanks for the reminder to do those!

    As for the backing after stopping I have to disagree with you mls

    As for the backing after stopping I have to disagree with you mls, many of the reining horses I rode were all backed a lot of the time after stopping. Sometimes we waited a minute or two, sometimes we backed just two steps, other times we just stood there asking for nothing. There are ways around allowing a horse to second guess. I'm not too worried about that here.

    Perfect Zeke. I got the impression that you had some sort of background with reining stops, etc.

    Thanks! It's been awhile, this boy will most likely test my seat while trying to remind him about good stopping basics, should be fun haha
