I thought clouds mentioned she wasn't asking for slides, just a nice stop with her butt under her?

Sounds like she's worried about her slides yes. My last comment was more me not reading a post right and being worried clouds may think it's ok to slide without plates.

Sorry guys.

My reiners all trail ride as well. I never have sliders on until a little bit before the show and I won't do any real big trail rides until the sliders are off. I am notorious, however, for wanting to run like hell all the time. That's my biggest flaw. I find it hard to rate myself. But I just chant to myself and use will power to not run my reiners with sliders on. And if I do find a decent place to run, I once again use the decent will power I was given to not run fast. I generally will just trot on decent ground if I have sliders. If I don't have sliders I will go on ahead and just lope and transition down to a walk before I stop.

One it keeps them from getting hurt and the other and just as important it can be a good training tool. When I work on transition from fast to slow circles if the horse wants to to down to the trot I will let them at times then down to the walk and then the stop. This helps them hunt the slower gaits.
Thanks for the advice. This is what I used to do before I started reining (but when she still stopped pretty fast), but I was afraid it would screw her up now. She does know voice commands really well... before I started reining, she would come down to a stop or walk or trot from a canter just from the word... so I think I'll start doing that again so she doesn't get confused or lazy when I actually ask her to stop.

No, she's barefoot in the back. I don't really care how hard she stops on the trail or if she slides - I just don't want her stopping on her front end.

Yes, exactly. Sorry I didn't explain it well. I really just don't want her stopping on her front end, because it's been transposing into arena work.
