WHOA: Teaching Your Horse To Stop

Teaching your horse to stop consistently and beginning the sliding stop

This classic is so good the techniques were featured in Horse Illustrated.

In these videos, Stacy teaches you the three cues she uses to stop her horses. She then shows you step-by-stephow to teach the cues. To ensure that you see the process clearly Stacy uses four different horses with varying training levels.

  • 2 hours long
  • Shows beginning (horse who doesn't stop with Whoa) through beginning the sliding stop
  • Explains in detail improving the stop with the bridle, verbal cue, and rider leg cues
  • Gives exercises for improving the back up

"WHOA! Teaching Your Horse To Stop DVD is excellent. Stacy does a great job breaking it down and giving exercises to do in a logical order with logical steps. I've watched it twice so far and will be reviewing it often."-Susan
