I would definitely be interested in seeing that. The method you describe sounds more like long reining? The reason I am longlining him is that I can stay at a safe distance for the initial training. We have had a few good double whammies when we started that just missed me so until I am sure he won't be doing that I will stay far behind.

Can't wait until you post the video.

Since it will be a while before I start this gelding, this video uses the same techniques I use, with only slight differences. Hope it helps. This spring, when I get this guy going, I'll post his starting in this, as the video horse has, obviously, been at it a while.

Long reining is a big part of our training program. It is very useful for working with remedial cases, where the horse can benefit from the direction and support, but it would be done best without the extra weight and added imbalance of a rider. I also use it on horses that I'm starting under saddle.

He is a nice horse, good luck with him.

That's not me in the video. I only posted it because these are the same techniques I use.
