Well, I hate to admit this, but ever since I've started riding, I've had a few lessons, but all those lessons EVER taught me was to kick to go, pull back to stop, and neck reign to turn.
I know this isn't the right way to ride, and I've been trying to squeeze my legs instead of kicking, and leaning on each seatbone to turn. I've also read magazines and books about leg cues, but it's all so complicated.
Could someone please just tell me plain and simple, the correct ways to slow, speed up, with leg cues and shifting wieght? Thanks.
I shudder to think my first horse was being kicked and pulled until the day she died.
