I'm afraid I will fast forward a bit now but... a few things I've always heard differently and need a little clarification about - I'm in the saddle, have my horse face the wall and I want to turn him on the forehand to the left. Where do I put my weight? On the left seat bone or the right seat bone? Does he move away from the pressure or into it? I've heard horses move away from the pressure in the saddle just as they do when it's applied on their chest, side, thigh etc. but then I also heard it's a natural reflex for them to move towards the pressure in an attempt to keep balanced (kind of like when you have a kid sitting on your shoulders and it leans sideways, you automatically move to that side not to fall over). Which theory is correct? How does weight switching make (or should make) a horse react? Can't really try with my own horse as he doesn't react to pretty much anything... Also, if I got it right the horse should be very slightly bent towards the direction he's turning, that makes my right leg (if I'm turning him to the left) an outside leg, right?
