How did you train your horse to stay on the rail?
So, I have decided that Citrus needs work on steering before we go back to WTC work. I have been trail riding him and/or walking him in the arena. He will follow the rail going to the left, but wants to veer almost the second I take my leg off of him when going to the right. I do not want to dull his sides and have been riding just in a rope halter and cotton reins. I seriously have to pick up the inside rein and give him an outside leg of varying degrees almost the whole way around to the right.....
How did you get your horse to walk the rail?
We did stop on a good note- after he had followed with less cues for one whole side of the arena. Baby steps for sure- sometimes for him being 5, he does not feel trained at all.
