I mean my horse already knows enough dressage the switch can't be too tough - because dressage is the basis of everything, right?
Since you added this since I replied I will address it now.
Again not sure where you get that anything being talked about here has anything to do with being an Olympic level horse??
Again I will say it again just incase you missed it. I am not looking to make my reiners in to a GP level Dressage horse. What I am doing is taking the SAME tools you use to build your horse to build mine. Then I am taking those tools that my horse has learned and braking them down using parts of them to improve parts of each maneuver.
Lets say I am not getting a good clean turn. There are a lot of things that cause this. So now what? Now I need to brake down the turn and ask myself why what is going wrong? Once I do that I can then look at ways to improve on that one part. Then I put it all back together.
Cueing the stop is a good example of this.
