Fwd: RC: Re: Re: Fwd: RC: RC: ponies/neck reining

Hi Michelle: I had never heard of the method of crossing the reins under the 
neck before. I simply did not understand the principle.I sent a post to 
Renie to ask her what she thought of the method. I have the highest regard 
for Renie's training methods. She has started and trained horses for me and 
she is very kind and patient with horses. She rode one of my horses thru her 
first 25 miler. Sincerely Hope
