I'm confused about leg and rein cues as well as sound commands.
For example, I know that horses move away from pressure so you apply your leg on the left side of your horse if you want to turn right. Sometimes however, you apply your leg on the right side if you want to turn right so your horse bends around it. See...confusing.
Also, I was told a cluck is for a trot and a kiss is for a canter but I always see people using both interchangably. I wonder if it's better to use words like walk-on, trot, and canter. What is standard.
Do you apply pressure differently with your legs when asking for a trot as oppose to a canter? When do you apply constant pressure and when do you bump? When do you pull the rein and when do you wiggle it?
Anyhoo, I'm looking for a book that goes into detail about all this stuff. Do you know of any good ones? I ride Western!
