    10 Meter Change Between E & B

    I would like to hear some helpful tips for change of direction between E and B 10 meter loop.

    It is harder for us to go from K to E to X change from X to B, the other direction I seem to have better sense of keeping is shoulders straight and coming around correctly in and out.

    Really working on that clear change to new outside rein and getting a good 2-4 straight trot strides on X, amazingly not as difficult as I figured it would be. The more impulsion I have the smoother the change of rein goes....just want to know if anyone had tips or could tell me what works for them!

    Thank you, I will be getting video of this soon to help share where we are having problems, I'm sure it's so thing I am doing since its just hard the one direction!!

    Make sure you have the flexion on the rein you are tracking when coming down the longside. Prepare the horse by half halting, turn the shoulders first and keep the haunches behind the forehand on rail road tracks (haunches not swinging in or out). Ride straight on centerline, change the bend, then flexion then turn and keep the haunches straight behind, straighten onto the longside.

    It is OK when beginning the exercise to ride straight down the centerline for more steps until he is truly straight, between the aids and then flexed in the new direction. Gradually shorten the distance on centerline. Other exercises to improve lateral flexibility are leg yield zig zags, serpentines, figures of 8s with simple lead changes (through trot or walk and as small as possible while keeping balance) and serpentines with gate changes (ie one trot loop, one canter loop, simple change through trot, one canter loop, one trot loop..).

    Thank you,
    I really worked on being straight on center line and did find myself adding in a extra couple of strides and that did help!

    I think I'm not using enough leg to begin p
    When we first start turning because as soon as I bump bump with my spur and support with my theigh he comes around straight and up into my reins.

    I'm also really trying to keep myself as quiet, steady with even rein contact thoroughout the whol change. Tomorrow I will try stronger half halts with more inside leg to back it up and see what I get!
