Teach Your Horse to Neck Rein
How to train your horse to neck rein, turn & spin with the slightest touch… so light it’s barely visible to the eye!
Note: If you have my Rollback & Spin DVD, this Neck Rein DVD is the next step. I highly recommend it.
Want your horse to neck rein exceptionally well?
If so, this 2-hour DVD contains the instruction you’re looking for.
Produced by California cutting and reining trainer, Larry Trocha, this DVD shows how to teach your horse to respond to the neck rein “lightly” with correct “form” and “style”.
Step by step, Larry demonstrates how to take a colt that’s green in the
snaffle bit and advance him until he’s a responsive horse neck reining in the curb bit.
And, the video covers a LOT more than just teaching a horse to neck rein.
Here’s what Larry Trocha says about this outstanding DVD
In this video, I start with a 2-year-old filly that is green in the snaffle. Step by step, I take her through the exercises that are necessary to get her “trained” and prepared to be a neck reining horse.
I describe the different types of snaffle bits that I use and explain why and when you should use each one.
I teach this horse to respond to my hands, give her head and get supple. I get control of the moving parts of her body. The filly learns how to move her shoulders, ribcage and hindquarters.
You’ll see exactly what to do to get great results
I show you how to use the direct rein, the indirect rein and the squaw rein to really get the horse improving.
Maybe the most important thing you’ll see in this video are the TRAINING EXERCISES I use to really get a horse using it’s body correctly. (These are the same exercises I use on all my good horses… green colts as well as champion cutting and reining horses).
Use these exercises on your horse to get him… SUPPLE, CIRCLING, STOPPING, PLANTING THE INSIDE PIVOT FOOT and bringing his front end around in a SMOOTH TURN-A-ROUND.
Discover the best transition bits to use on your horse
Next, I introduce the “transition bits”. These bits are the stepping stones used to graduate the horse from the snaffle to the curb.
I show how to adjust the bit and curb chain so it fits the horse right. Then, I demonstrate various ways of holding and using the reins.
After the horse is going well in the transition bit, I graduate him to a curb bit.
Refining and polishing the neck rein
This part of the DVD is where things really get good. This is where I refine and polish the horse’s performance.
I’ve built the horse’s foundation in the snaffle and transition bits. Now its time to put the frosting on the cake.
You’ll see how to teach your horse to rein REALLY, REALLY LIGHT. So light you barely need to move your hand to get him turning.
Guiding and turning your horse with just your legs
In this section of the video, I demonstrate how to use your legs and spurs properly.
This is one way to guide your horse without any visible cues. Get this technique down and you can literally TURN and SPIN your horse without anybody knowing how you’re doing it. Pretty cool really.
