Delete, EVERYTIME you are leading your horse somewhere and you stop you should stand him up. Leading from the barn to pasture, stand him up - leading from stall to crossties, stand him up - leading from crossties to arena, stand him up....... and so on, you get the idea. What will happen over a few weeks is your horse will learn that every time he stops you expect him to be square and at first it will be a lot of tooing and froing but soon he will work out that if you say stop that means he MUST stand up straight away and in the end that makes a much prettier picture for in the ring. Think of it this way, who would you put first out of someone who spent 5 seconds to set their horse or the one that was ready the second they stoped........
On the eigth day God created the Quarter Horse..... on the ninth day, he painted the best ones........
