Flying lead changes:p

My horse is very green..80 % of the time he'll get his flying changes, but when he doesn't I have troubled getting him to pick it up. I'm really confused on how to do it! My trainer said ' twist your body and pick up with the inside rein'. I honestly don't understand it though! And whenever I get him to get the front change, he won't change the hind:( help please?

When you're cantering, send him into the corner of the ring. Pull your inside rein, push with your inside leg.

How we get my pony to pick up his lead, hold outside rein, loop the inside rein, and push with the outside leg. 80% of the time he'll pick up the correct lead when doing this..

If he's a young horse he likely is still having balance issues. Don't overdo the ring work, give him some relaxing trail time. You can also work on him picking up a lead on the trails and it won't seem like ring work to him.

Lead changes, I wish! My gelding just turned 7, he's been growing like a weed, think he's finally done at 18 hds, about a ton and we started cantering when he was five on trail and this last year started some work in the arena just working on leads on big circles..... dreaming of lead changes some day but right now I'd be happy with a 20 meter circle! I've seen our instructor use a pole on the ground in the middle of cantering a figure eight and asking for the change at the pole as you go over....?
