I agree, talk to a trainer. But I will tell you how I do it when I'm riding english....
So when I'm going to pick up the right lead I will use my left leg to slide back and push the hip in, and use the opposite rein to tip the nose in. Then ask for the lope. Now that you are loping ont he right lead, slide right leg back to push that hip in and the opposite rein for the nose. I'm a western rider and that has always been the technique I have taught my horses, only with reiners you jut have to change direction and they do it on their own :)
