  1. i am only watching this to make sure your telling new riders good things and the most part its great! nice job. But for people who can do a posting trot should work on completely relaxing there muscle's, lowering there energy and completely ignore the bit. Sometimes when having trouble doing this give a vocal command like whoa, Easy, or sometimes horses (like my horse) and lesson horses calm down be a soft whistle. Its completely pain free. This is for people who use a bit at all. I prefer not to but 2 of my horses (Ferdelgo, thoroughbred, Arianna, andalusian) both need bits because they are hot horses who wont respond to bit-less bridles or neck ropes. hope this has helped =)

  2. Maybe I should have watched this video before I got on my friends horse (I later found out she was a racing horse) and it just galloped away with me on it. That was the first time I ever rode a horse. True story. I just realized how stupid it was to write this on April 1. Well it happened yesterday.

  3. Ok I'm a little bit confused. In sweden we say prh to stop and lkk (I can't really spell it cause it's more of a sound) to start walking. Do you say wa and wo? 

  4. They respond to the movement of the body, even true working cowboys know this. It's not just an "english" thing.

  5. It doesn't always work, its not like they are born to stop at the word "whoa", if you're riding them that probably wouldn't work-they don't go purely by voice, you have to reinforce it

  6. Thx for that 🙂 that helped a lot, im watching all your other video's and they all help too. 🙂 Thank you x

  7. I have been riding for nearly 6 years now, and as time has gone on, i have actually forgotten the basic's and i just have the habbit on pulling on the reins to stop, but i have tryed this technique out and it has worked alot better for me thankyou so much for all your help. My riding is alot better and equal. x

  8. This is just not a good video on stopping a horse. Jenny is even demonstrating backwards traction when describing the halt on the ground. And if you sit heavier, the horse will drop his back and creep forwards, instead of being able to raise his back and step under with the hindlegs. The seat needs to make room for the back, not plonk down more heavily!
