Instead of pulling your horse into a lead change, think of pushing him into it. Use your leg to push his outside hip to the inside, your outside seat bone to push him over, your outside shoulder back, but don't lean. Once he is steady & shifted to the inside (you don't throw away your inside aids, they balance him), ask for the change with the outside rein on his neck. You really should have someone experienced in teaching flying lead changes on the ground helping you, otherwise it can mess up a horse and get them rushing, which leads to crossfiring.
