A good stop. Using the hindquaters.

How do I get my horse to use his hind and give me a good stop? Like when you say whoa and his but just drops to stop himself. If anybody knows what I mean please tell me how I can achieve a good stop in my AQHA Impressive bred, 14 yr. Gelding.

Hello there I do reining and campdrafting in Australia. I train alot of young horses. Ok to help you I need you to help me.....
When he stops, does he prop at all?
Do you know how to do roll backs?
Do you back up every time you stop?

If you could answer these questions for me that would be great

Take a big breath in and say whoa at the same time you have to sit down and then you pick up the reins and back up a few steps, do that a few 1,000 times and he will get it.

Maybe even 2 thousand times. Do lots of sit and spins too or 180's reverse on the rail ( all the same just different names) They do have something called sliders they are man made and I have never seen them. My mare always stops on the front no fixing it now either.

Personally I don't belive in sliders, if a horse can't slide normally then why force it?

Sweety is right, horses can slide without sliders, sliders just make then slide further. If they can't slide without sliders then they are not going to slide with them.

Thanks Flying B I just though of something, not really important but good enough. When you are say.... cantaring up the side of the arena, lighten your seat, when you say whoh or whoa deepen your seat, like relax and drop your weight.
I will give you a example, this is one of our youngsters we were trianing. The first picture is of when he was just getting use to the idea of droping his Hindquarters:

The second is the finish product 2 1/2 months later. As you can see he has built up more muscel and he looks like a different horse.
