    Facinating do you lunge her with the butt rope or do you ride her with the butt rope? My girl has so much trouble figuring out where her feet need to go, a lot of time she will spontaneously lead change
    Yea sounds like my mare...we've only been butt roping maybe like 2-3 weeks and I have already seen an improvement. Most of it just has to do with building the muscles (the correct ones) and to get the horse to understand how to be collected and balanced at the same time.

    You just lunge with it. It has done wonders with her. She doesn't crossfire or swap leads as much and she now gets the concept of where her feet need to go. :)
