I recently started doing shoulder ins as a way of engaging my horse's hindquarters.
We start out on a 20M circle off the centerline, getting him loose and supple, then move him onto a 10M circle. When we come around to the centerline again, I ask him to do a shoulder in.
Most times he gets it, but sometimes he doesn't right away and I get flustered and we end up going off in a different direction.
I feel like my legs aren't strong enough to give him the cues, but he is very responsive so I don't think this is the issue. It is a lot to remember at once between inside/outside hand and leg, and I am practicing a LOT, but does anyone have any tips to offer about getting consistent shoulder-ins?
