There is an old saying and I am sure most have heard it "Rise & fall with the leg to the wall". When I first starting riding english a few decades ago, and the instructor said this, it was like "huh, which leg to the wall, and I gotta fall somewhere?" I learned to cheat, look down at the horse's outside shoulder, when it goes forward, you rise up. Even after all these years, I have to slightly cheat for the right diagonal, left one I can tell.
