TIPS on re-training a western gaming horse?!

So my horse is 25 and yes he is old but he is in tip top condition so I don't want anything about his age please, I do not push him to do anything he doesnt want to do, because I know he is older.

Annnnyywayy, any tips on getting him to neck rein again or get his leg pressure back up to tip top form?

I got him in 06 and he hasnt had any of that since then, due to one, lack of experience on my part and two, my mom didnt want me showing so I didnt think leg pressure was important. I know it is now that I have become more experienced.

Thanks :)

Welcome to the forum. You won't hear any of us complaining about his age, so long as he's healthy and happy, that's all that matters.

In re-training neck reining and yeilding to leg pressure, I would go back and start it all over as if he had never learned it in the first place.

This guy may not be the very best, but his videos are easy to understand and the methods work...plus, he shows it on a horse that doesn't already know how.

Here is a good video that shows to to teach a horse to neck rein (there is another part to this one)

And here's a video from the same guy that shows how to train to leg pressure (there is another part to this one too)
