I thought your comment was funny and I totally agree with it.

see sawing will soften his mouth and get his attention. then if he wont stop for verbal commands you can do a one rein stop.

^^^This is a good way to get your horse totally running away with you. See-sawing and jerking on the reins will most certainly NOT get your horse softer. This has to be in the top 5 worst peices of advice ever posted on this forum.

I snort/giggled when you posted that spyder, hehe... I thought it was cute, no need to get your panties in a twist guys...

to the OP, maybe you could get him to yield his hind quarters when you try to stop him, disengage his forward movement...

You know whats SO sad.....one of the trainers at my barn suggested doing this to a group of advanced jumpers to get their horses warmed up (I can't remember how she phrased it though) and I immediately thought of you!!

One of the reasons I'm glad I don't ride english :)

Its not only for english. I see western rider do this ALL the time to get there horses to back up. I myself do it when I am riding my mare with a halter and lead, because she just responds to it much better.

Opps. Say goodbye for any natural horsemanship in this case then.

A GOOD horseman will NVER need to resort to "roughshod" antics.

People that do this are looking for quick short cut ways to dominate the horse without any thought about the horse al all. The people that do this have not taken the time to understand cause and effect and quick fixes tend to be just that...QUICK but not permanent fixes.
