They make all the videos on that street. I have her in a mylar snaffle pinchless, no shanks. She is not supposed to know how to neck rein.

Not to hijack your thread, but this goes back to the trouble I've had finding a horse that was both trail and arena ready. Most people looking for trail horses aren't looking for horses that also know leg cues, and many walking/gaited horses that I've tried have never been taught them. Direct reining on a horse like that is crude, just tip the nose to the side you want the horse to turn toward. Sellers only show off the gaits (which is why all the videos are like this) and it's expected that these horses will just go on the road or down a trail without much call for extensive leg/seat work.

I'm guessing that horse has never been taught these things.
