Ranch rid­ing’s spins need spe­cial care.

SPINS IN RANCH RID­ING don’t have the luxury of build­ing mo­men­tum and ca­dence over the course of three or four turns like our horses do in work­ing cow horse or rein­ing. At most, a ranch rid­ing pat­tern calls for two spins; most of the time, it’s one spin in each direc­tion. This makes a snappy, busi­nesslike start to your spin es­sen­tial. Here I’ll tell you what I look for as a judge and how I spin my ranch rid­ers to stay out of the penalty box.
