You have one-second to react to spooking so, practice to muscle response. A one rein stop, when per-trained, will give you control and immobilize horses within a foot movement. When practicing your horse will become more relaxed, slower, and supple. Training tools provide better communication, response, and safety. (1 video of training playlist)

Backward and forward riding motions are the basis of all horse movements. Test your communication, control, and knowledge by backing in circles, figure eights, and serpentines. Stopping and backing are the same cue, by mastering backing you are guaranteed to stop in any situation. (Training playlist)

Having trouble finding a saddle to fit your horse's withers? Every horse has different size withers that require special saddle trees. A poor fitting saddle will cause soreness leading to behavioral problems, by eliminating discomfort training is effortless.
