Ok this is the last time I'm going to say this. I do not train, in my Dressage training, to improve maneuvers. Ever. Period. Done. I do not train cues. I am simply systematically strengthening and improving the horse as a whole. My focus is on refinement and improving the whole horse. That is dressage. Yes, when I show up to a competition and am required to do a test, I will perform maneuvers, but this does not form the basis or goal of my training. Period. Done.
Thank you DxD.
ETA fnb I still have not made a statement on how I think reiners train or do not train or what I think they do. I don't know why you are still reading that into my posts.

Ok so you train as a whole. I would love to know how you train as a whole. When I am training anything I brake it down and work on every aspect of it. Like I stated before I determane what I need to improve set a plan and work that plan. There are times that when I am working on one thing to improve it what I am doing will also improve other things.
Ex. When I work on backing I am at the same time improving my stop.
So I would love to know how you work on a horse as a whole with out braking it down into parts? Not bassing I want to know. Again I take dressage lessons to gain more information and tools to improve my reiners. I have found this works very well. I also do reined cow horse for the same reason.
