Hi All

I can't get the western horseman magazine anymore....can someone explain what the " Cavalry stop " is.

Both horse and rider remain straight. No bending. Less change of a fall. One rein remains at normal riding level to keep horse's head straight forward. Opposite rein lifts straight up which will either slow or stop horse depending on how much lift you use. Practice this on the ground first. It is very easy to teach and works beautifully. After the horse becomes used to this, it is not necessary to lift the one rein so high.
