    Spinning around the middle would be when both the front and hind quarters are turning and the middle of the horse is the "pivot" instead of the hindquarters or forequarters.

    Oh! My fault, read it wrong. I thought she said that the spin wasn't a haunch turn. Had me thrown for a minute.

    I will be sure to try all of your suggestions ^^

    If I am not mistaken, a spin is different from a true turn on the haunches as the former the horse 'pivots' off one hind leg where as the turn on haunches requires the horse to keep all feet moving, or that the hind feet are actually traveling on a very small circle.

    Please correct me if that is wrong : )

    As I have learned, a spin is a fast turn on the haunches - a pivot around one point. The pirouette, however, is where the hind legs travel on a very small circle.
    However, this could be a difference in terminology from english to western.

    I was always taught that too, JustDressageIt.

    And just an update, I tried your suggestions today with Gringo and DAY-UM there's a differance. Thanks, he's setting himself up really well now and acting like a docile gelding instead of the hot-head stud horse.

    Ahhh, yes, as I was thinking about it I wondered if I was thinking of a pirouette. Thank you.
