    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/J-turn

    A J-Turn is a driving maneuver used to reverse a backwards-traveling vehicle so as to continue driving in the same direction, but with the vehicle pointed forward. The J-Turn is also called "moonshiner's turn", based on the elusive driving tactics used by bootleggers. A J-turn differs from a bootleg turn in that the vehicle starts out reversing.

    @ #1: Can you do it with a horse (and is it still called the same) ? . . . ;-)

    @ # 3, yep, on a dime. Western ranch horses are generally trained to do that. :-))

    @Daddy: ...or in the dressage world ... "turn on the haunches" (from halt), "walk pirouette" (from walk), "canter pirouette" (from canter - this can also be a 360° turn) - the difference being that dressage horses aren't supposed to do it when reversing! :-)
    @Helmi: do you have as much snow and ice as we do?

    @ # 5, Hi Debbie, we had plenty of that stuff in January but after a week of temps in the 50s and 60s it's mostly gone now. Have a great weekend. :-))
