That really is your best bet. She knows how he was trained so she can show you all his buttons.

After reading through these. I would suggest starting back on the basics of stopping.

After reading through these. I would suggest starting back on the basics of stopping.
1) Walk/trot to fence keeping your horse straight and driven up all the way to the fence and let him stop himself....
2) Work on backing with loose rein and head down and tucked in.. walk or trot and him to stop... if he noses out. Put your leg back on him push him forward into the bridle, once he relaxes his nose place his head and then ask him to back again on a loose rein.
3) step the above up to a slow lope and so on... don't ask him to stop fully until you feel really comfortable at all these steps.
4) speed the backup up so he jumps back......

This will also help strengthen his rear end (backing) if he is weak there and get him used to feeling that stopping isn't going to hurt him....

Note: I found out that if your horse spins or stops great then all of a sudden they move their foot or stop funny..... Start back at the basics on how you trained the horse when he was a 2 or 3 year old. Example - our horse spun great, then all of a sudden on the left spin he move his foot or hind end like crazy... I tried severals things and it worked but not that well. So I went back to basics... trot spin half ways trot off, spin halfway etc.... With in 30 min, he was spinning like he did before...

Maybe he pulled something in his back legs that's making him stop funny? Since you said that he has been worked hard and stopped with out boots.

When this happens with mine I call the chiro/bioscan person I use. If they are working well and then are not. It is more likely that they pulled something and need some work to get back to feeling better. Normally it takes a day or 2 to get Jacky out so in the mean time I use my Bioscan pads and Migun pad and by the time she gets here it only takes on session and they are back to stopping and spinning just like before.

Wayb: I know you are kinda in my area ... Reining By The Bay just happened, did you happen to go to that(I went Saturday to the Derby and it was AMAZING)? That is a good way to get hooked up with trainers in the area. Also check out the reining shows in this area and then maybe you can go watch/meet some trainers.

Lastly do you have sliders on the back? You may need to get some b/c maybe his hind feet are getting caught... Oh and one more thing, are you sure you are asking him right? The lady who trained him is probably a GREAT tool to utilize
