what are the aids for turning and controling the horse in walk trot and canter

How do you explain it simply to a new rider? And then more involved for the more experienced ones?

What is so different about the aids in the different paces?

All your thought and experience please

To a brand new rider on a school master? Right rein to go right, left to go left, squeeze to go, pull and sit back to stop.

To a rider of a high level. Inside leg pushing to the outside rein for collection, get the inside bend by lightly using the inside rein, and turn the horse's body with the inside leg while regulating the size of the turn with the outside balancing aids. The outside leg keeps the impulsion from behind. Both legs are pushing the horse up into the connection and lifting the ribcage and rounding the back for proper engagment of the hindend.

Nothing should be different in each of the gaits.
