This is way off topic I'd ilke to bring it back into the topic a little.

How would crossing the reins help? I too am teaching my horse to neckrein and its proving impossible.

You should cross the reins uner his neck. When you move your hand to the left, you will put pressure on his neck, but also put pressure on the left side of the bit. This way you have a combo of neck and direct reining, and he should pick it up rather quickly.

You can learn to communicate with your horse just by interacting with it. Like she said Parelli isn't god, his methods dont' work for everyone. They don't work for me.

Waving a crop in the face? That's just flat out strange to me. It would take too much effort anyways, where are much easier ways to teach a horse to neckrein then using a crop in its face.

That makes a lot of sense now, I will DEFINITELY have to try it. I am also teaching my horse to leg-yield at the same time and he is getting that rather quickly.
