Wow, Spyder, that is the most understandable explanation I've ever heard--it clears up so much-- like WHY the more-or-less position helps a green horse (which I have trouble thinking will do a correct haunches-in) get his lead; and the problem of "falling-in."

HalfPass, in my case it's all about Going Foreward. My horse does her best half-pass when we're out on the roads. Nothing goes well until I can get her moving out. Right now that's our biggest issue.

The only error I made as I was trying to not name left or right side because crookedness will occur on either side but does appear more to the left than the right.

And what happens to the opposite hind leg is that it no longer swings straight forward but out and away from the profile of the horse...in essence...does nothing to help the horse at all.
I said right because I was thinking left hind in the previous paragraph.
