Question inside leg/outside leg pressure

Hi all! I'm a newbie. I've taken lessons in barrel racing for about a year and a half. I hope I can explain this and you can help me with some tips. I learned to leg cue so my horse moves away from pressure. So, to move the horse left, I'm getting my left leg off him and applying pressure with my right. That being said, I'm going to start riding a new horse (lease) that works the opposite. He turns into pressure, so when I put my right leg on him, he's moving right. I haven't even started and I'm already confused. Is this going to be an easy transition? Any suggestions or ideas to make the transition easier?

That can be difficult to train a horse that is trained to move into pressure. Hopefully someone will have some useful suggestions for you.

It's going to be easier for you to change than the horse to change. It just gets a bit confusing when you change from horse to horse but you do get used to it.

I had to do it with the canter aids and it didn't take long to sort it out. The wrong lead a couple of times and I remember
