    This is a video of an English rider demonstrating a one rein stop
    There are different methods - I prefer to slide my hand along the rein as I ask for the horse to flex rather than have that long expanse of rein doing nothing - especially if you're working on a horse that has a tendency to bolt. You can still give release for reward very quickly
    I would also suggest you do this from the ground to start with and not from the saddle until the horse has learnt to calmly give to the pressure
    I will say from experience that cobs with short thick necks find it harder than a horse with a normal length slender neck

    I will say - and I know that some people will disagree - but its not something I would want to risk doing if the horse was in gallop or even in a canter because I think there's a real risk of them losing balance and coming down on you
    I also think that if a horse is bolting and therefore not listening to you its likely to ignore the request to flex its neck round as well

    I believe horse that 'fall' in movies during battle/gun scenes are pulled over by the one rein stop. Best to learn at the stand still then the walk then trot and then a nice slow canter.

    Yes I have to agree with the last 2 ^^ They fall when one rein is pulled and if a horse bolted they are stronger so how would we get them to uncomfortably for them pull their head around..!! It's good but dangerous and could cause problems!!
