    Hi Larry I was scrolling for some help in riding articles and came across yours for the first time in years you have answered my question why cant I ride like that, Thank you I have been struggling with reining and don’t seem to be improving no matter what I try. I have a great little horse but I think he would go a whole lot better with a better rider but I’m not ready to quit yet need your help.
    At the moment he wants to run on his front end and not do a slow collected lope????
    Any help will be appreciated
