    Hey, I’d love to get critique on this short little ride my instructor filmed. I’ve trotted bareback many, many times, but I’d like to know what I could do better. Thanks!

    What is your method of neck reining and about how long does it take? I am wanting to teach my horse and would like to hear from fellow riders what they(you) have found to work well. Thank you in advance!!:cowboy:
