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.
