Hello all, so I recently started reining training (3 sessions) on my 7yr old that I started at 3. I'm teaching her to spin like Larry Trocha shows in Pt. 2 of spin training on You Tube. She's coming along real well I think for my level of experience at training. So she's moving away from the rein fairly well when I touch it to her neck lightly. I also trail ride quite a bit in the mtns. My question is how do I manage the reins so when were just trail riding casually she doesn't spin when I touch her neck but yet when I want a spin she respects getting off the rein?
Will she know the difference? I don't want to send the wrong signal and then have to get aggressive with the spur if she doesn't respect getting off the rein when I do want a spin. Hopefully my question makes sense.
Thank you for any advice. Shadow
