Even though he/she's not sitting right down into that slide (and its impressive regardless!) I do like the traveling front legs ALOT! After only four months to have that quality into a slide is impressive indeed!

So regarding spins .....

I was under the impression that spins have been "moving away" from having an inside pivot foot planted, and more toward allowing the horse a small amount of movement back there? Is this true?

I had just always thought that pivot foot HAD to be planted in a spin, but I feel like I have been seeing (and being told) otherwise lately.

No it doesn't HAVE to be planted, it's ideal to have it planted because it keeps that back end planted in the same spot and it looks 'smooth and tidy', however some horses like mine will do the little dance but won't corkscrew across the arena or throw his hip around, it's a balance thing, he also throws his tail around a lot in the spin too:)

Toto,
Would you do me a favor? I would enjoy seeing a spin done correctly. Could you please post a video of you doing one well? Although I do ride western, on occasion, I have never ridden a trained reiner.

Thanks!

Will a judge score the two any different? One who plants the inside hind vs one who "dances" a little?

Well the quieter the back end is the better I guess, my horse won two classes in his futurity year....so I guess it didn't hurt! Wish it was me who was riding him!

No the judge will not score them any different. The key is not planing the pivot foot but keeping it on the same spot or area. Horses that spin fast need to pick their foot up and set it back down so they can gain more speed and lesson the stress on the joints. What most judges are looking for is a correct spin and that has more to do with the front end then the rear. So as long as the rear is quiet and stays in place and the front end is crossing over properly they will score well. Then as you add speed and finess you add points.
