    Let me measure the rope when I go out and feed tonight. I can also talk to my sister (whenever I can get her to answer! Lol) and ask how she originally figured out how long to make the rope as It was originally made to fit her gelding. :)

    Oh I forgot to tell you only do this while lunging. :) and remember don't start by doing it for a long time, it will be a lot of work if he isn't used to cantering a lot and will tire quickly. I suggest maybe 5-7 min each way to start and the move up from there when you think he's ready.

    Thanks so much! I am excited to try this! I wanted to use a lounge line but that may be too long, my horse is 15.2-15.3hh. SO soon do they start doing it correctly under saddle? :)

    It just puts pressure on them to remind them they need to keep their legs underneith them while cantering..which goes along with the helping them to be balanced at the canter. Does that help? I'm not really sure how to explain it any better. Haha :)

    Yeah that makes since to me! I can't wait to try this, also to hear what size rope you use. What size was your horse in the video?
