    DescriptionThis book presents an indispensable programme of progressive training exercises for the Western performance horse from World Champion trainer and rider Sandy Collier, to date the only woman to win the NRCHA Snaffle Bit Futurity - the 'world's toughest cow horse event'.Whether your goal is just a well-broke ride or a competitive reining run, Sandy's got the right cards to play at the right time, guaranteed to get you where you want to go successfully. In "Reining Essentials", she shares her own hard-won wisdom with tips to help you set your horse up to succeed, develop great timing and precision, and be systematic and creative when teaching new skills. She describes the foundational basics she believes every riding horse needs and then shows you exactly how to 'put them on' your horse, and confirm and test them with specific lessons before moving on. These include: vertical and lateral flexion; walking the circle and counter-arc circle; backing up without resistance; responding to 'whoa'; and moving off the leg and pivoting. With essential lessons for everyday performance, this is a Western training book like no other.
