Just to explain to them that lessons are about learning, so it is fine to look down....IF and only if they arent sure. Since you (the coach) are asking them if they are on the correct diagonal, this is an "IF" time to check. Tell them that because you asked, they should be checking just to make sure.
The only way I know to double check is by feel...but I have no clue how to describe it.
Is there any way to put them on a lunge line and tell them to keep going back and forth between sitting and posting trot? (I think someone else said this was how their coach did it...?)
