Joe, I wouldn't advise doing it that way. They still don't learn how to turn off of the rein on the neck, they are simply pulled around by their mouth.
And, if you do at some point need to take up one rein for whatever reason, you can't because they are crossed under their neck. I've known a lot of people that would "teach" neck reining like that and I've never seen even one instance where the horse neck reined well after they were done.
Charley Horse, will your computer play videos directly on the youtube site?
If so, I'll embed the link where it will take you to the video on youtube instead of being in an open window here.
Dangit, having issues, give me a second....
Well, I guess it's not going to let me just give you the link.
So, go to youtube and do a search for Training Tips: Neck Reining and Pivoting, part 1
The video is by eXHorses.
Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/
