    Thanks for confirming what we already thought....I wasn't convinced you'd actually take one.

    I'd say for my gelding its staying straight and a forward walk bc he gets so lazy at a walk! Other than that I can get him to do anything he listens and collects and extends wonderfully but that dang forward walk for some reason he just doesnt want to do! Lol

    Right now for Diesel it is pivots and his side-passes to the left are getting stiff so we need to work on that.

    I have the hardest time teaching flying lead changes and making sure my circles are circles not octagons.

    Nelson does wonderful circles to the right. He can be soft and supple and I can get him on the outside rein easily. To the left - not so nice.

    But it could be me as well. I could be unbalanced in that direction, and Nelson reacts to that.

    Same with Diesel. Everything is beautiful to the right...not so much to the left.

    I think his stiff side and my stiff side are one in the same.
    Needless to say, we spend a lot of time making ugly left hand circles :P

    HA HA!!

    As my coach says "don't work on what you can do, work on what you cannot"

    So - yeah - we're the same! We go to the left allot...and it aint purdy!

    Yea that's the same for me and my horse, we're both left handed as my trainer calls it so we work 60% to the right and 40% to the left. It seems to help him a lot to lift with my inside leg to get him to bend around the turns better.

    I don't need to prove anything to you.
    And just got a concussion from hitting myself in the face with my stirrup iron. Give me a break!
