How to cinch the front

1. Ensure your cinch is unhooked and hanging where you can reach it.
2. From the left side of your horse, hook the left stirrup over the horn.
3. Untie your latigo and reach under your horse's belly and grab the cinch.
4. Insert the latigo into the cinch's dee ring, from the back side. Meaning the latigo will stay close to your horse's belly and the end will come towards you.

We've all experienced at some point during our riding career when a horse spooks, the horse goes one direction and the rider goes the opposite direction or straight to the ground.  How do we stay with our horse when s/he spooks?  A lot of practice learning to anticipate and flow with your horse's movements will help you stay in the saddle.

Jonathan Field wrote an article in the January 2014 edition of Horse & Rider Magazine called, "Mirror-Ride for More Confidence."  In this article he talked about learning how to feel a horse's subtle movements when s/he is about to change directions.  By practicing with your horse, you learn to teach your body what these subtle movements feel like and how to anticipate your horse's movement and flow with him/her.

One exercise I like to teach my students is to close their eyes..
