If your horse starts to spin around, drop the rope so that you do not wrap the horse up. Only do this test in a yard.
If you saw anything like this:
Your horse does not have a Lateral Mouth and you shouldn't be riding such an animal!
Here are some photo's of how they should react to the ground test and for interest, the mouth under saddle. My current breaker.
and, when you pull on the reins, the head should go n this direction:
If you don't want to BURIED on young, Green or Problem Horses, you need to be able to do this and if you can't....Good Luck
Go here for the best mouthing and re-educating system in the World.
THE FRONT BRAKES
Put a Roller on your Horse and a set of long reins or ropes. Drive the Horse around the yard and without warning, set your hands in concrete and your feet planted on the ground to be not moved by the Horse. Feel what you feel and rate it out of 10. If you get pulled off your feet, you have a substandard Mouth.
Then, dwell, relax the Horse and the reins, then pick the reins up and demand a back up. Not ask, demand. Feel what you feel and rate it out of 10.
You now know what the integrity of the REAL or TRUE Mouth is. The one that lays beneath the surface. The one that comes out and finds the Horse run with you when frightened. Not the 2 ounces of pressure Mouth.!
Then decide if you are safe in riding such a Horse and go re-mouth it with my Mouthing system. The only one on the Planet that can re-mouth a Horse.
