John Wicks Clinic: Teaching a Horse How to Spin with Correct Alignment from a Walk Circle
9.43 minutes – In this video John talks a student through teaching their horse to put steps together in the spin by starting from a small walk circle. The horse isn’t ready to put steps together in the spin yet and can only take a few steps across before they want to leak out in the ribcage and move its back end. John helps the rider get a few correct steps before working on putting more steps together. John explains how to teach a horse correct alignment in the spin and also explains some corrections for when things go wrong when getting started with the spin.
