Very true. So do you think if i were able to send her to a reining trainer for two or three months he would be able to get her to slow down? I actually sent her to one a year ago however we had to pick her up two days later as the barn she was in flooded and she was standing in 6 inches of water.

plus i would LOVE to be able to show her in reining. Its my personal favorite and she's got some nice stops (nearly been the death of me a few times) and can move.. obviously

I agree with SH on the rollbacks thing. I use them to get my rope horse fired up, cause she's a lazy butt.

I've done a couple with Squiggy when she's having ADD moments, and did NOT like what they did to her brain. And she's just a hot hot hot horse and that's all that's to it. She's been hot from day one, it's just how she is, unfortunately/fortunately.

Yep I think the reining would help, definitely.

Pssh.I didn't pick up the wrong lead
It's called a counter canter...
...A very advanced maneuver.

I understand QHRider!

I had a trainer once who told me when she got hot to spin her in circles and wouldn't listen to me AT ALL when i said no. I nearly got killed that day. And i forever disregarded ANYTHING that woman said ever again.

If she was a barrel horse those rollbacks will probably just make her hotter by the way. Most of them do get hotter. Sherry Cervi tells her students that rollback make them hot as well. My three year old is the only horse I have ever met who doesn't get hot from it.

I would just send her to the trainer if you can afford it. Easier that way.
This is correct. My reinng trained super mellow gelding will heat up in the arena as soon as I start practicing roll backs (which is my favorite thing to do....even above sliding!!!)

A good reining trainer will be able to have a good honest attempt at slowing her down, if not correct it completely. Slowing down from the big fast to the slow small is essential to reining training.....so a good reining trainer would've come across something like this more times than you can say yankeedoodle!!!

Ruger, as much of an idiot as he is sometimes, is actually very mellow and correct when he drills. Of course with him I did rate exercises about five hundred times before we turned anything because I was worried about him getting hotter like Selena is. Bailey was awful to do rollbacks, but her turns would suffer if we didn't do them in the warmup so we had to do what Sherry did with Chappi and just do it and quit her and then make her flex and bend and flex some more...
