So is there a kiss for the left lead and a different kiss for the right lead ?

Thanks for everyone's input on this! I *think* I have a good understanding of how to introduce my mare to this idea. Good thing is that she hasnt really been taught anything so she will be the easy one to teach...me on the other hand;I will have to be re-taught :)

If you can make them quiet enough for them not to be noticable, your face could still possibly give you away.

What happens if you were to sell the horse next week? The next person would have to be taught the noises, or might not even use them, so the horse *could* possibly become confused.

Even when I lunge a horse, I say walk, trot, canter....no smooches. The only time I try to smooch is when I am jogging the race horses, and then its a flick of the line on their butt and a quick cluck.

I'm curious, how do you guys make a walk-canter transition without smooching? I always have to smooch to Molly because I'm not sure how else she knows how to pass over the trot.

I will answer your question with one of my own.

If you smooch to get a walk --canter transition just how does she know it is a walk to canter and not a walk to trot transition needed?

If I'm at a walk, to trot I either squeeze with my legs or cluck very softly.
If I'm at a trot and I want to canter, I squeeze with my legs or smooch.
Is there a different place to place your aids for trot or canter?
