An excerpt from "Rein In Your Horse's Speed Course [Downloadable PDF]":
How do you know when to move to the next step? In most cases, it's when your horse is getting something ninety percent of the time. If you cue your horse for a movement - and he nails it nine out of ten times - move to the next step (so to speak). If the horse messes up simply go back a step, perhaps break things down further, and really get the previous work down pat before trying another advancement.
Bear in mind that simply asking your horse to do something over and over - without seeing a change - is going to annoy your horse and stall out your training. As I've been inferring, every single time you pick up the rein, you should have a backup plan already set in your brain. You should have a backup plan that says: "If Seabiscuit doesn't move his hips (for instance), I'll ask him to move his shoulders instead." That way you've still kept the correlation (in his brain) between you picking up the rein and him moving some part of his body in order to get a release from bit pressure. Example: If you want the horse to stop his shoulder and move his hips around (a disengagement or turn on the rear), you should already know that if the horse simply hangs on the bit, continues moving his shoulder and just kind of drifts around, then you should be prepared with your backup plan. You might then, after about six seconds, change the angle at which you hold the rein and increase or decrease the pressure until the horse moves a shoulder a step to the left or ask him to take a step backward instead. Find something to get that you know your horse will do - and end on that. (rpt)
