In this video brought to you by Polyglycan, hear from $8 Million Dollar NRHA rider and expert horseman, Andrea Fappani, about how to build the fundamentals of a good stop. Regardless of your discipline, a solid stop is always a good thing. As Andrea says, “I don’t know anyone that doesn’t like a horse that stops well.”

Using a fence or some sort of barrier, try out this exercise from Andrea when teaching a young horse to stop, or when working with an older horse that is rusty. Build the fundamentals of a good stop with Andrea, at the video below.
