Red face how to Spin?

Hey there..
I bought a horse about two weeks ago, and I have this big show in town with all the horses, and I know my horse knows how to spin, but every time I try she just won't do it... I looked up for tutorials in youtube and I asked plenty of ppl...
But none of that helped, i'm 100% sure that she can do it, and I know
The problem is that I never learned how to do it and I have no one to teach me.
Could anyone help me? I can upload videos and such to make you look and tell me what i'm doing wrong... please help <3

No one can teach you over the net. There are so many variables. How was the horse trained who trained it where are the buttons is there just one or is there a combination of several to get the horse to turn. With out knowing the horses back ground it is just to hard to say. Also it might not even be the horse. It could be how you are asking how you are sitting how your hands are and where they are could be one or a combination of several. If you can not feel what is going on there is little hope you can fix it with out somone there to help you in person.

Then ask the previous owner to show you her cues, or if you have someone you know who is experienced in reining or reined cow horse, perhaps they can help you. The 2 spins are slightly different.

Don't give up just find someone local to give you a hand. Even if it is the prior owner.

There is just so much to teaching and then asking for a spin in a reining horse. Each one is different. Then to take it from the writen word to the physical can be hard. Been doing it for almost 20 years now and I have owned quite a few reiners over that time. Each one has been a bit different. Even when trained by the same person.

Wow. We say it's hard and BAM, you give up? You won't last long with your horse if that's your attitude.

We can't tell you because each horse is trained differently. Can you just contact the old owners and ask them? Maybe have a trainer come out and work with her for a bit to figure it out?

Even if you can figure it out via the internet its SUPER easy to mess up a good spin. You want both YOU and the horse to learn and preform it properly! My advice is to find a trainer, and of there is a reining show in your area there MUST be trainers, or at least seasoned riders, around.

Is there any way to contact the previous owners for advice, or meet up with them with the horse to get some help? To see if the horse is blowing off your aids, or if you're giving them differently than she's used to.
