    Cool Drills?

    One know of any good exercises and drills to work on a couple times a week to keep my horse slide stopping and spinning? I do roll backs(on the fence and in the open) daily and we work on collection, relaxing, and backing and stopping with my seat only alot but we are both getting bored with the same old exercises

    I would consider going to a training and getting some advice. There's a lot more to it then just doing turn arounds and stops. It would be good to see a video so we could see what you need to work on. JMO

    Is this a trained reining horse that knows how to stop and spin?

    If it is, all you are going to do is take a lot OFF of his stops and spins by practicing them. In no time at all, he will NOT stop or spin any more. Leave his stops, spins, roll-backs and lead changes completely alone and work on things like getting perfect lead departures, perfectly round large and small circles and learn to ride straight lines and squares. You need to learn to keep a horse perfectly centered between your reins and your legs.

    Most of all, get a trainer to work with so you do not lose all of the good training your horse has. Meanwhile, I would not try to utilize that training at all if you do not want it to completely disappear.

    Yes I bought her as a finished Reiner. I've had her a long time now. I don't compete in reining. I barrel race but IMO I like having a horse with a great foundation before starting them on barrels. So she is a great barrel horse so far and she still slide stops and spins and does her leads correct etc but I just wanted some reining drills to do on her(:

    There are no 'drills' as such. You spend your whole time training a finished reiner to stay 'honest', to not anticipate and to stay between the rider's legs and the the rider's reins. Your entire time is spent keeping them light, responsive and 'listening' to and waiting on their rider.
