Hey guys, just a question on turns on the haunches.
I don't know much about the technicalities of reining and such so I thought it would be best to bring this question to you all ;)
I'm teaching my little arab/morgan filly to turn on the haunches. And she is getting the basic idea of it, but I feel like I might be asking her wrong, or I might be missing something. I've also been using the fenceline as an exercise to reverse with a half turn on the haunches to the inside and that seems to be helping.
But my question is, how do YOU train for a clean turn on the haunches? How long does it take you to get it really down pat (I know its different for every horse but in general) ? What are your cues, signals, or voice commands if any? And teaching on the ground.. I just can't seem to get it! I feel like they aren't quite understanding what I'm asking..
Anyhoodle, If you could help me out that would be fantastic :)
Thanks for reading!
