My mare hasn't been exposed to neck reining until now. So for her, it's not just 'riding your horse.'
I have been riding her with one rein in each hand, and with my hands close together, so its almost like it would be one handed, and I can easily give a little tug of her head if she doesn't respond to the neck rein. She's starting to get it with just the rein on her neck and leg pressure, but I don't have much control of her. If she wants to go somewhere else that I don't want her to go, she won't respond to the neck rein and I just have to pull her head. I was wondering if there were any exercises to help her get it more, or if just repetition is the trick.
