I don't know if this is anything that's at all possible, but it's worth a try.
I'm looking to buy a horse to do a little bit of reining on for fun, and will be buying one who already knows how to rein. I used to kind of do a modified version of reining with a horse I had in the past, but it was a weird situation...I pretty much trained him entirely myself and made up all of the cues for everything we did based on what made sense to me and what worked for him. I've never really been properly taught what is the normal way to cue a horse correctly to do these things.
Is there a way that cues for different reining maneuvers could be described, or a good place I can be directed to to read further? I'd like to be able to get a feel for the reining ability of the horses I try out, but there is no reining trainer to bring since I will only be doing it for fun and probably not competing (plus I'm broke, haha) and my barn is pretty much english so I don't know anybody there who would know...and I'd hate to have to ask the owner what to do hahaha
I believe that for the stop generally you pretty much just sit down and move your legs forward, is that correct? I think that's about all I really know.
I know that I won't be able to do things perfectly of course because that comes with practice, but it would really help if I could get a general idea of what to do, enough that an average reining-trained horse would get what I'm saying.
I hope I'm making sense...
Thanks for any and all help!
