Side passing problem

When sidepassing my horses forelegs move a lot faster than his hind end, making him crooked. What is the best way to straighten him out?

Generaly this means that he is falling out through his shoulder, you need to catch it and support him with your outside rein. Can you get a trainer who will teach you how to do this?

Well my horse had this problem with half passes. Say your yeilding to the right...u put your left leg at the girth and bend his head to the inside. When his front end is out of line with his hind end, apply alot of right rein to "hold" his shoulder in place for a second and let his hind end catch up. Also take a dressage whip and a split second before his hind leg is going to cross the other leg, tap him. Do it everytime he crosses over. This will encourage him to speed it up a lil or take bigger steps

My horse used to do that too! I realized I wasn't pushing my toe upward enough so my heel wasn't touching her in the right spot.. & then I just tap her multiple times with my heel instead of pressing it into her & holding it.. So maybe check what your heels are doing, that could be it!
