How to spin and stop?

Hey Guys!

I have a question on spinning and sliding stops. How do you teach those and preform them? Any tips on training them?

Thanks!

Yup-get a trainer. Easy to screw up, hard to fix, so need to be taught correctly the first time.

Also, pretty easy to hurt them too! You need a keen eye for good footing or you might be looking at a broken/twisted/sprained/pulled something. My trainers arena is obviously set up to slide or spin anywhere and she is still rather anal on exactly where she wants me to do it.

Are there any good exercises or perp work that the OP could be working on as a preparation for spins and sliding stops? Where would a horse need to be in his general education so that they would be ready for the next step with a trainer?

The OP could work on leg yielding and side passing, counter arcing at the jog, trotting spirals in and out and could also work on straightness, speed control ie. Practicing run downs, speed on the long side and slowing on the short side.

There's so many exercises to help with shoulder control, straightness and speed, but those are some that I use:)

Lots and lots of flexing and suppling exercises. Stationary to all gaits. And definitely invest in training. I bought my daughter a horse that was trained for reining and barrels, but wouldn't consider letting her try any of those maneuvers without a trainer to show her how to ask for them the right way.

These are things you really really really need a trainer for. Do not try and teach a slide with out a trainer. Same with spins.

If you want to just work on things body control. If you can not more ever inch of your horses body at all 3 gaits then you are not ready to even think about spining and sliding. There is so much that goes into a finished reiner. It takes years. If all you are looking for is to play then you do not need to be sliding and spinning.

Well said. My daughter pivots but is in no way ready to full on spin...getting there to her left, but to the right is still step by step. There will be no sliding stops for her horse for a while. Right now we're just happy with a good, butt-under-the-horse stop. The thing is they don't do "reining" or barrel racing lessons, they do an insane amount of body control lessons. Twice a week since September working on body control. She practices her patterns for a week or so before a reining show, and sets up the barrels and runs 3 runs the day before a race. The reining patterns are because my daughter needs to learn them!

I agree get a good trainer. It's not something that can be taught by words over a computer:)
