Join up or hooking on, or whatever you want to call it is away to get the horse "with you" can be on a horse and it is not "with you"..or you can be on a horse and it will be "with you" if it is not wiht you you may find out the hard way (bouncing on the ground) or it may jsut be stiff and full of brace and resistance...
My mustang is so much more responsive under saddle if I roundpen him first and get the "join up". You need to get them relaxed and feeling you and in tune wiht you and following you.

I would reccomend this sort of method to anyone with horses, as horses are naturally follower (herd dynamics) if you can establish yourself as an alpha (not in the way humans view "alpha" dominance, rather in the way a horse would) then everything else will be easy and there will be little resistance when it comes to who's in charge of who, you will just need to establish the correct communications with your animal and provided you have the consistency it takes, you and your horse will be bound for great things!

I also do round pen work. And yes , it is about getting your horse "with you".
I There are a lot of movements one can do and some are better than others with this "dance with horses" of applying and relieving pressure. What I am looking for is for the horse's mind to be on me. To do this, when he looks or moves away from me and occupies himself with something else, other than looking at me, I will "interupt" that thought. I will do what ever it takes to make him let go of that outside thought. If he choosed then to put his thought on me, then great. He may run when I interupt him , he may buck, but that's his choice. I wait until he makes a choice again; either me or something else. If it's something else, that is the incorrect choice, so I interupt that thought and give him another chance to choose me again.
Once he turns to look at me, I do nothing, and maybe turn away from him. From what you are saying, it might be good for me to actually walk away. I have tried backing up and moving in an arc around to his hindquarters in order to see if I can break him out and get him to follow, but turning and walking away, havne' tried that. But, that does sound interesting and I think I shall try that.
I did a little round pen work today but had to stop before I came to a place where I felt that the horse was really settled on giving me his attention and staying there. Of course, by their nature, horses have very short attention spans, so one must be ready to remind them of where their attention needs to be from time to time.

I just thought that the cost of Mr. Reis training kits was outrageously expensive. It seems they should n't charge more than half of what they were chargeing.

Help me wiht join up

The Freedom course is all you need, it is the fundamentals the rest is just development beyond that. But to get the freedom course right will take most people some time. The Freedom course is 200 bucks. I think that is in line with CA or JL or PP. I tios certainly worth it. It is what I started wiht then got the other three courses, but rarely look at them. Most of the answers are in the horses foundation anyway. I also get the 20 a month membership so I can go to his forum, get a monthly DVD and call instructors etc.
