Over the years I have been taught various ways to use your legs while loping. I have been taught to hold the outside leg on the hip and the inside leg up by the shoulder on and off to the rhythm of the horse. I have also been told the use the outside leg to ‘drive’ the horse to the rhythm of that leg with the inside leg holding the shoulder up.
Is there anyone who can expand on the correct rhythm to use both of your legs at the lope. I understand that all horses are trained differently but there should be a general way to lope a horse? Shouldn’t there??
