Part 2 – Training for the Show Spin
8.35 minutes – PART 2 – Training for the Spin from a Walk Circle: In this video Angie explains what she is wanting when working with a more advance horse in the spin. Angie explains the difference between working on training for a spin from a walk circle and working on training for a show spin from a stand still. When training for a spin from a circle Angie wants to take all the elements of correct alignment, collection and rhythm from the walk circle into the spin and maintain this correct form in the spin. Then she wants the horse to walk back out onto a small circle so the horse maintains the desire to turn by themselves. Whereas when she is training for a show spin from the stand still Angie talks about how to fix the start, work on maintaining the spin by themselves and then how to tune up the shutdown.
