Just to let everyone know, I'd never practice or even attempt sliding stops without the help of boots, a nice soft ring and someone to be there. For now, and possibly forever, we're simply working on stopping when I SAY, not when he wants. Yes, I'd LOVE to work on reining professionally but that's not going to happen for awhile. I can't afford it. Lol!! Right now we're working on spins and backing, stuff that will help us for our possibly future in Western or Ranch Pleasure or just on the trails. He needs to learn to back in case it's needed on trails and the spinning is to help our future in whatever we decide we want and can do.
