ACTHA has announced that The Great American Trail Horse Festival being held November 5-8, 2015 at the Von Holten Ranch in Mora, Missouri will feature some of the equestrian world’s best known clinicians. The largest trail horse celebration in U.S. history is open to all trail horses, all breeds, all trail organizations and all disciplines. The clinicians featured come from as equally diverse background as the riders themselves, allowing for countless educational opportunities for all who will be attending.

Question from a rider:
I'm trying to figure out how to teach my horse to spin, what is the easiest way to get them started? I've been having trouble with them wanting to suck back and hop with their front end and not staying on their inside pivot foot.
Steve Kutie's reply:
I'm sure that everyone has seen a reining horse spinning like a top and thought "How did they teach them to do that"? To be truthful the spin is really simple and easy to teach if you follow a few simple steps.
