Preview: Tarin Rice: Breaking Down Terminology

Futurity Champ Tarin Rice explains some of the most common used terms trainers discuss with their clients. When showing, these words can be confusing in the heat of the moment so we got Tarin to give a great demonstration on what these terms mean. Tarin will explain, in these three videos, the following:
* What is your cow side and herd side foot
* How to use your feet when riding a cutting horse
* What is “too flat” and why it can make it hard on your horse
* What is wait – are you waiting on the cow or the horse?
* Draw is not necessarily backing, it’s more a transfer of weight
* How you fix a horse that is short one way and long the other
* What is suppleness?

Part 1
Tarin explains what the cow side and herd side foot are. He demonstrates how to use your feet and why it's important to be able to move your horse's body around. He also explains why getting too flat can make it difficult on your horse's turn.
Part 2
Wait and draw are two terms commonly used in the show pen. Tarin works a horse on the flag to demonstrate what wait is, and that draw is more a transfer of weight and not necessarily just backing. Tarin gives a great perspective on suppleness and that it's a mental acceptance more than physical flexability.
Part 3
Show horses can become show smart and can get short one way and long the other. Tarin works a horse on the flag and explains what he does to help a horse figure out staying even with the flag is easier.
