This may seem like a stupid question, but aside from being a Western trail rider, all my technical coaching has been English (jumping & Dressage).
How do you teach a sliding stop? Is it feasible to be something I could do on my own, or would I be best getting a trainer to show me?
I ask because Jynx is set up perfect to learn them - she darn near does them already! In a snaffle bit, on a loose rein, I can sit and say woah and she will slam the brakes to a halt from any gait (by adding gentle leg pressure, I can control that woah into a descent to the next gait as well, not just a halt).
How much farther would I have to go to get her haunches under herself and sliding a bit? Am I dreaming if I think I can teach her this when I've never even ridden a sliding stop before?
