I'm kind of embarrassed about this but I have always been confused about left and right direction with horses. Whenever my instructor would say, turn to the left, I always get confused!! because isnt it kind of backwards with horses? It's not MY left is it?? I also get confused when people refer to clockwise and counter-clockwise. Is that just the same as anything else working clockwise? Please help.
"'For I know the plans I have for you,' declares the Lord. 'Plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future'" ~ Jeremiah 29:11
Your left, is his left. So when your instructor says "Turn left," pull your left rein, the only time its opposite is with your legs, you push the horse around with your legs, so if you want him to go right, you PUSH him right with your left leg.
