In terms of leads, I put a pole on the ground on the diagonal or at "A" and "C" canter the horse over it and usually they will switch when they canter over it and just cue them to switch. If you do this enough the horse will get it.
Thanks! Good to hear that the pace is okay—I usually think he's going way faster than he actually is, hence the tight reins lmao. And thanks for the lead tips! He usually gets the leads over the jumps as he is pretty well trained, I just have trouble getting him to switch if he doesn't... :P
