You get a 5 point deduction for touchin the saddle or the horse during your run, lol. Why do you think they hold their hands up so the judges can see it? Why do you keep bringing this up? Most of us here in the REINING thread aren't grabbing the horn and know how to hold our hands I think. This is not the beginner western thread 101.
I know anything is possible-- but is it really possible to do as I just said and still be straight as an arrow on the horse? Probably not for you, but if you ride it correctly, yeah.Even after grabbing the horn? Im pretty sure the body would go along with it.. or maybe not.. im not a people trainer-- I can only tell some one how id do it and answer any further questions.. I was going to say try to bite your ear- but I didnt want OP to fall off in the spin. Huh? I doubt OP can get her horse going that fast, and if she falls off turning slowly, she needs to go back and work on balance.
Not to be a butt-- but you just gave somewhat of an opinion.. if the OP don't get it now- it aint happenin. Sorry.
It tickels me that you actually had to place the leg for your friend.. not even makin fun- you're a good friend.. ida told mine to 'figure it out'
