    I can’t wait to try with this with my pleasure gelding. He has an old soft tissue damage injury to his left hock. Will that hinder him any? He has gotten really bad about going backwards with my lesson student and sometimes with me. I hpoe this will help him. I’m going to have to try it. Thank you for the information. Very clear and easy to understand.

    @foiran Thank you. I really liked him. He was green when this video was shot but he developed into a good show horse, winning several year-end championships in reining and working cow horse.

    @ValtronW no, spinning does not require ‘special shoes’ but reining horses wear slide plates on their back feet so that they can slide in their stops. slide plates are extra wide shoes that go on their back feet and are perfectly smooth. as far as spinning goes, any horse can learn how if trained properly with or without shoes.

    Having huge issues with my colt pivoting on wrong foot and couldn’t figure out how to get him to change – the video helped immensely and hopefully pushing him out of it at trot/lope will improve this – Thanks Larry, really appreciate it and also the rider critique video showing me EXACTLY what I am doing wrong!

    I have a Question: How thick should the reins be when training horse for reining? Or just competing in reining?

    @KnightHawke01 Yes, I’m using some leg pressure as well. And I explain more about it in the other spin videos.

    Are you using leg pressure as well? Or is it just the neck pressure?

    does your horse have to know how to pibvit on the ground first before teaching them to spin

    @Waybueno If you watch “Part 3″ of this video series, you’ll learn exactly “WHY” your horse HOPS when spinning.

    is this a good exercise to do with a horse that already knows how to spin? my horses last owner used to push him through the spin to much so now if I ask him to spin fast he will hop.

    Right now i’m training my gaited Tenn. Walking horse to start to rein, hes very good at roll backs and starting to do sliding stops, i really want him to spin, would you think he’ll be good at reining, even though hes gaited?
