Exactly. I have NO clue about it.. but I know quite a few people who think they're horse can do a sliding stop with no training. Not to mention the horses are not bred for that kind of thing.
They think if they run at top speed, slam down in the saddle and pull on the reins as hard as they can and yell at the top of their voice to whoah that the horse is going to do perfect sliding to stop.. And now they wonder why their horse won't stop now...
So Please go to a trainer, don't try it on your own.
