well its not the easiest thing but i may be able to help you out
what you need to do is train with the horse everyday
canter or trot and then go to an imedate Holt keep doing this for couple of weeks and you will end up like Stacey westfall
if none of this works reply back to me
*make sure your horse already stops on a dime at the trot and canter before trying the sliding stop*
Keep your horse in a straight line throughout the run-down. Lope down the arena, gradualy building speed until you reach the point you want him to stop (do not get the horse to go faster than the optimum speed he will go and still stop) and then ask for an imedate stop. Do not slow him down before you stop, you will not get a good sliding stop. If your horse does not stop very collectedly, ask for a few steps of backing up. After a few times, the horse will round up when you ask him to stop because he anticipates the back up. Do not pull very hard on the reins-this shortens the slide. For the best slide, you want to sit back and say whoa and have him stop. This doesnt interfere with him like pulling the reins would, producing a longer sliding stop. If you cannot do this with your horse, then you may try sitting back and tightening the reins just a tad. After that, do not pull harder on the reins. Just keep that tiny bit of presure. If this doesnt work, then you could sit back, and tack the slack out of the reins just long enough to give him the sign to stop, and then release. This is good if you cant get your horse to stop withough pressure on the reins, but he doesnt slide far enough when you hold the presure.
*NOTE: when asking for the stop, if using reins, say whoa, and wait a second before pulling the reins. This gives the horse time to set himself up for the stop, and will eventually make it so you don't have to use the reins.*
*Make sure you are doing this on good footing! It should be on ground with a packed base with 2-3 inches of loose fluffy footing on top of that. Adding rice hulls or shavings can keep it good and fluffy. You could damage your horses legs if you do not use this kind of footing or similar footing and will not get a good sliding stop. Also, have skid boots on your horse to prevent his fetlocks from being rubbed raw when he slides, and braid your horses tail to keep it out of the way*
Also, whenever stopping, make sure that you stop riding.. You should totally relax in the saddle.

To back or break
sorry but theres no way to get a horse to pivot i should know i ride horses. actually yoyu can teach it by giving it inside rein and outside leg.
Horses that paw the ground, stomp their hooves, or kick their back legs are usually acting up because they are bored. To keep a horse busy, give them something to do such as a haynet to eat from. If you aren't interested in feeding your horse, try petting, grooming, or tacking it up so that the horse doesn't feel as if you are ignoring it. You can teach it a "stand" command to teach it to stand still. You could also reprimand them with a "no!" and a slap when they paw. If nothing else, you can hobble it. This would have a double effect. For one, it would stop the pawing problem, and for another, it would make the horse more submissive to you.
A balding girth is used to prevent the saddle from sliding and rubbing the horse, it can also be used to give the horse more movement at the elbow.
You stop riding it!
Have you ever heard of dressage? They basically make the horse dance. You can teach the horse reining manuvers, (sliding stop, lead changes, run-downs, spins, etc), cow cutting, barrel racing, trail riding, and many other disciplines. Groundwork is very important to teach your horse, and once you have ground work down pat, you can even teach your horse tricks like smile, yes, and more advanced tricks like bow, lay down and even rearing up!
Before you go for a sliding stop, make sure your horse already stops when you just sit down in the saddle (backing up helps get a good stop if you do not have the normal stop perfect yet). When you get this good, get your horse into a fast lope and when you're ready, sit back in the saddle. You don't really want to pull on the reins because this calls for a shorter sliding stop. If you get your horse going fast enough, he will slide. Just make sure you have the proper equipment: a nice snady arena with nice fluffy dirt. Rice hulls can help get a nice fluffy top. Also, tie up the tail incase you have to back up to reinforce the stop so the horse sets back on his hocks better.
Sudden, sliding stop with drastically bent haunches and rear legs; the type of stop a cutting, or cowboy, horse might make to round up cattle.
Of course you can teach a western horse to ride english.
That would be a good idea. Also, if you are doing sliding stops, you need sliding horseshoes. They are very wide and flat, and let the horses' hooves slide on the ground for a stop.
== == AnswersIt is easier to stop sliding friction than rolling friction. The force due to sliding friction will always be greater than the force due to rolling friction. And since friction force will be in the opposite direction of motion it will be easier to stop an object in motion that is sliding than one that is rolling.
Sliding Friction If you push hard enough on the cardboard box filled with books, it will start sliding. If you stop pushing after the box starts sliding, it will slow down and stop. The force that acted on the box to slow it down was sliding friction. Sliding friction is the force that opposes the motion of two sliding surfaces in contact. Sliding friction exists between all sliding surfaces that are touching, such as the surfaces of the moving parts in a car's engine.
"Whoa" is the classic command to stop a horse.
Sliding Window Stop and Wait
It can be if you teach your horse to respond to it.
I use my breast plate for looks in the show ring, but it can be used to help keep the saddle from sliding backwards when the horse is moving. I use it on my horse that has almost no withers to prevent the saddle from sliding too far to the side.
They make them square.
