Quote by beau159 "Does Weiser know how to do a one-rein-stop? Based on this picture, I wonder. He looks to be very resistant to the bit and fighting you. That is not what a beginner rider should be riding, IMO. You will not learn how to be light with your hands if you end up pulling (it looks like you were very much pulling in the picture)."
My question also. I assume this is a lesson horse and not your horse. Personally, I would not think a beginning rider should be teaching the horse this move. You will learn as you go along some horses are very flexible and others are like trying to bend an oak branch. My Arab/Saddlebred bends like a willow, the Paint, well, the oak. I like to work on flexing from the ground (good video except I don't use a tail hair as a connection), and always use pressure and immediately release when the horse responds. For me this makes it easier when you ask for a response when you are in the saddle. Just something to keep in the old "data bank" for future use. : )
Good luck and happy riding!
