I have a 9 y/o paint mare that I bought a couple months ago. She came with 90 days of training and can do a sliding stop very nicely just off of seat pressure. I am working on speed control in the circles and neck reining in a large field, and I'm making progress there. Lead changes are still a challenge.
However, I've been trying to get her to spin since I got her, and I know I am just not doing something right because she would have gotten it by now. It's very frustrating, I'm not sure how to fix whatever I'm doing wrong!
I've been concentrating on getting her to cross over with her front leg, which she will do for a few steps, then she'll shuffle and swing her hip, then she'll cross over again.
I've even got a short video..... I know it's awful, but please, any tips!!! I've already seen Larry Trocha's videos and like I said I've read every post on this forum about spinning, but I'm obviously not getting something....
