Lead Changes Having lead change issues? Get help from a professional !
The purpose of a lead change is to change direction without breaking gait. A lead change is really one of the most complicated maneuver we do with our horses. A lead change is something all horses can do. For some horses, a lead change comes natural and is easy to do, others need a little help. The same goes for riders, a lead change is something every rider can do. Some riders just need a little help and instruction from a professional.
Rollbacks Rollbacks are a necessary maneuver not only for reining, but for working cow horses, ranch versatility horses, cutting, and ranch horses. Every reining pattern or ranch reining pattern requires two rollbacks maneuvers. It is important to know how to properly execute A rollback. What is a rollback? It is a sliding stop followed by the rider turning horse 180°. To preform a rollback properly you must complete a sliding stop, pause, and ask the horse rotate back on his haunches and lope off in the direction you came from. Simple right? A rollback receives more penalties than any other maneuvers. -Why is a rollback so difficult? It is the technicality of two separate maneuvers. A rollback should look effortless and should only be a slight touch on the horses neck and the rider should have a light hand.
Spins Whether you are doing a reining pattern or a ranch reining pattern, a spin is a signature move of each. The spin shows the ability of the horse to move quickly on the front end while keeping the hind end in one place. What is a spin? A spin is a fast paced 360 degree turn on the horses haunches. The horse is asked and required to step rhythmically with his front end around his rear legs. A correct spin shows the horse to always be crossing the outside front leg over the inside front leg. Every reining pattern required at least four spins in each direction. You can receive a plus or minus. It is important to know how to work the spin properly and effortlessly to receive the desired plus score.
Sliding Stop The sliding stop is preformed by slowing the horse from a lope to a stop position by bringing the back legs under the horse in a locked position while sliding on the back feet. To property execute this maneuver, the horse should enter the stop position by bending the back legs further under the body while at the same time maintaining forward motion, ground contact, and cantering with the front legs. This should be done in a straight line while maintaining ground contact with the back legs.
