Rick Gore explains the differences between direct reining and indirect reining to have better control over the horse and have him go where you desire. Direct reining, also referred as plow reining, is when pressure is applied directly to the horse by pulling the rein. Apply as much pressure as you want to have the horse turn the way you want. Indirect reining on the other hand, is without pressure, laying the rein on the horses' neck to give him an indirect cue to go a certain way, instead of pulling on the rein. Knowing the differences of direct and indirect reining will give you better control over the horse for a smoother ride.
