Well, I've been working with my mare at leg aids, and well, she's listening and doing what I say, but very slowly, like she doesn't know what I'm asking. When I ask for her to step over for a half-pass, she tries to back, or move her front end. If it's not that, she's stepping forward and I have to pull her back to a stand still. Then, when I ask for her to move her front end, I have to keep pounding on her, and use my reins to make her step over. Sometimes, she does it right, but other times, she moves her back legs as well. The same thing happens when I ask for the hind to move over. Is there anyway that I can make her more responsive to my legs, and use less pressure to do so?
