Ok, I have been around horses my whole life, mostly cutting and stock horses most recently gaited horses. I have started and finished a few, and have done it mostly the way my dad and his peers did it. Lots of "cowboying", and just lots of miles.
The more I read through this forum, I hear terms I am not familiar with (no formal training/lessons myself). I am certain that we do the things you mention, just not sure what or how..... Hopefully this makes sense. Now to my question.
What is meant by "Disengage the rear end?" I hear this alot but have no point of refrence...
