I love reining, and decided that I want to persue it. I have tought my horse to spin, but he brings his head up when I ask him to speed it up. I ask him by barely touching him with my spurs, he speeds up, but his head comes up also. How do I help him keep his head down? I won't use a tie down, I would rather take the time it takes to help him learn to use his body more efficiently. How do I teach him to spin quickly, while keeping his head relaxed?
Thank you all for your time and help!
