A Good Quick Stop

Does anyone have any tips on how to get a horse to stop real quick like? My horse stops at saying whoa and putting my feet forward. But is there any exercises to get a good quick stop for foundation on the reining stop? Thanks it will help a bunch.

I would suggest sitting really deeeeep in your saddle. Incooperating this with everything else that you are doing. When a horse performs a sliding stop they are actually pulling themselves foward with their front legs. While their sitting on their back legs.....if you will. A sliding stop takes a long time to execute perfectly. People usually try to make their horses begin to start the sliding stop by doing it on a slight decline. This makes the horse use their front legs to pull and back legs to slide. I hope this helped some what

When I'm training my guys for a sliding stop I always ask for a back up IMMEDIATLY after they stop. By doing this they learn to use the back end the keep the front end very loose.

What I used to do was take them facing the fence and then ask "Whoa" right before they would nearly hit the wall.

But other than that everyone else has pretty much hit it.
