    Neck Reining?

    I'm looking into buying a horse for western riding that has only been taught direct reining, I was wondering if anyone has any personal experience with training one or if they could direct me to a good article. Thanks! It's crucial that she knows as I will be showing WP, Trail Classes, and Barrels.

    On average if you train correctly it will take 60 repeated steps for the horse to slowly catch on. What you don't want to do it direct rein, then neck rein. The command is already given, so the neck rein will be pointless.
    What I do:
    1. Lay the rein on the neck, the direction you would want to go
    2. Give leg commands (If you eventually want to go bridless)
    3. THEN, direct rein.
    Repeat this going right and left. It wont happen within a day, but if you do it right youll be surprised on how fast it goes.
