training for cow penning

I would like some advice regarding training my quarter horse for cow penning/ranch sorting. I am interested in 'building block' moves-the very beginning maneuvers. When we are good with that,I'll ask for more! Thank You!

A good stop. No matter what else you have trained into your horse, you won't do well if you can't get a collected, immediate halt.

Really need more info on what this horse knows/how he has been trained up to now to offer meaningful advice.

I agree on a good stop, and for me the most important is good body control, especially shoulder control, but also rib age and hindquarters. Without good shoulder control you won't get fluid fast turns. On my mare who will eventually be a campdrafter we do LOTS of slow, correct turnarounds emphasizing that shoulder control.

As stated a good stop-one where the horse is dropping the hind end and not "bouncing" on the front, then go to rollbacks along a fence...this will get the stop even better, and it will get the horse working on the hind end and moving their shoulder.
