    I don't really understand what your asking??

    Are you asking about moving up and down and the gaits?

    Or are you asking how to preform certain movements?

    Seems like an overly vague question. You are asking someone to describe the aids necessary to make a horse do just about everything?

    Inside leg should always be pushing to the outside rein. Your outside leg should be keeping the movements active, and the inside rein should be asking for the bend. Most of the time, in a jumping course, you turn with your outside aids. For true collectino and half halts, it's the inside leg to outside rein.

    Technically there are 4 "natural aids": legs, hands, seat, and voice. (artificial aids would be a crop, spur, etc) English and western use all 4 aids but may use them differently.

    You want to know the cues for pretty much everything in riding, english and western? That's a lot of information.... :)

    Not true about the inside leg always pushing. You never want your leg to always be asking for something. You ask until you get a response and then you take the leg off. Always pushing with your inside leg will often imbalance your position and dull the horse to that cue.

    Not exactly sure what the OP's question is, but remember your seat. Where you put your weight is key. If you head down the center line and shift your center of gravity/weight to the left with the appropriate aids, your horse will leg yield. And so on.

    Inner and outer aids control...everything.
    There really isn't another way to put it. The application of said aids in specific ways gives you different results.

    For my horse- my inner leg is bend/support, my outer leg is speed/track control.

    Inner rein doesn't do a whole lot, maybe a little suppling. Outer rein is what he's on the bit with because I ride him inside leg to outside rein.

    Everything we do involves these aids or some variation of them.
