Ahmen! Its clear you dont know what your doing because you wouldnt be asking for help if you did. Your best bet is to get a trainer to help you, give you lessons so they can watch you work with your horse and give you help along the way.

I agree with Delete and NRHA Reiner.....it is a process. Knowing only the cues is not nearly enough. You need to have a fundamental understanding of how each maneveur works, feels at its best, and the process to handle all the training that goes with it. Reining is ADVANCED training.

If you know, then why are you asking for help?

True knowledge/understanding of how to train a horse comes from experience, not watching videos.

IMO, take nrhareiners advice. Can you post a video?

I meant i know what the correct way feels like. Why are you guys so friggin rude sometimes?

I definately don't think people are trying to be rude. Just from reading your original post it sounded very basic and that perhaps you were focusing on just one area.

Please remember this is some peoples passion and they feel strongly about it.

Please do not assume we or I was rude. Only offering an opinion.

So, thank you to some of you. To others, I never said I "knew how" thats why I'm asking. I am very aware of what I can ruin if I don't do it correctly.

I do not feel that you were being rude. Thank you for your opinion.

We are not being rude, we are just being honest. You need a trainer to help you. Its common sense. Sure you can try to train the horse by yourself but its apparent that you need help, your going to make bad mistakes that are going to be hard to fix if you dont take the proper steps to get the correct help you need. The correct help is not videos and websites, its a face to face trainer who has trained horses before and can help you with your first so maybe that next time you train a horse you wont need help.

It is not about being rude. It is about making sure that what you are doing it correct. Reining contrary to what most think is not just a pattern or simply cuing a horse. It is a process. From start to ready to show (NOT FINISHED) is about 2 years. A finished horse takes about 5 years.

There is no way to watch a video or convey on a forum how to do something.

Terms are different feeling is different what you do if a horse does this or that will be different depending on what the horse is doing.

I have been riding and showing reiners for about 15 years. I still use a trainer. I know who to teach the maneuvers however I still again use a trainer and you can ask him. I still call when not if I have problems even with a finished horse.

It is not that we are being rude it is just that this is not something you can just do.

-I'm so busy... I don't know if I found a rope or lost my horse.
-An Armed Man is a Citizen an unarmed man is a subject.
-Where ever free speech is stifled Tyranny will reign.

And what are you to do if a trainer is not available, or you can't afford one, etc? Just stagnate? Shoot, I have to drive 40 minutes just to be at a barn where I can ride western! Some of us are just trying to do the best we can with the resources available. And, are able to know when to ask for help and not be ashamed to.

Signature undergoing edits. Please standby.......

I also want to add that you mentioned that it's not your horse being trained. You don't want to risk messing the horse up. If you make money off of training, it would not be wise to put your reputaion in the line of fire.

I worked for a trainer every day all day for 5 years and I still can't train jumpers from start to finish. I can get them to a show ring but thats about where I'm out of my knowlage.

You might want to sit back and think about this for a while.
