Right but he is a VERY good trainer and what he did I think was the best thing for each of them. When you are a succesful trainer then you can do it all the same for every horse but Mr. Trocha is right to ride these horses like he did.

No I totally agree with you. My step father is a world class cutting horse trainer. I enjoy watching how he works with each horse differently. I learn a lot by just watching. I know about each horse personally and I understand why he does certain things while working them. Its a cool thing to experience. His sister is an amazing trainer too. She's so graceful when she rides. Hopefully I will be just as good one day! I want to win that futurity! Thats my goal ;)
I am very serious about it though. I am going to train cutting horses hopefully. If my plan goes well. LOL!

If my horse doesn't like you then I don't either.Deal with it!

I watched the video and didn't see any direct rein, but I think maybe we're having a discipline/terminology disconnect.

If by "direct rein" you mean something other than neck rein, well, yeah, I saw opening or leading rein without contact.

Coming from my discipline/experience, I use direct rein to mean direct rein of oppostition as one of the five classic rein aids:
  • Opening or Leading Rein
  • Indirect Rein of No Opposition – also known as a “neck” or “bearing” rein
  • Indirect Rein Behind the Withers –also, the “indirect rein of opposition behind the withers”
  • Indirect Rein in Front of the Withers –also, the “indirect rein of opposition in front of the withers”
  • Direct Rein of Opposition – the rein commonly thought of as the ordinary “direct rein”
Thought the videos were neat and he was an interesting trainer.
