When I started riding, I was taught to use outside leg to turn. I was taught to seesaw the reins to get the head down. I wasn't taught how to use my seat or legs to round my horse and to control speed. I am trying to change my ways. My colt is round, but I catch myself seesawing or using the wrong leg to turn...I don't want to confuse him! I am a lot better at using my seat to speed up and slow down his walk, when I speed it up he stretches into the bridle and puts his head down and I just get so happy.
Does anyone have any tips on remembering the new and forgetting the old? I like the new way much better but it is hard to stick with it
