Walk- cluck with a light squeeze
Trot- cluck with even pressure from both calves. Slower I sit down hard, slow my hips and press into my stirrups. Fast more suspension in my post with light leg aid.
Canter- a smooch with outside leg. Maybe pick up on the inside rein a little.
Back- sit back, lift lightly on the reins, squeeze and make a sh sh sh noise (hard to write out, lol).
All downward transitions are words "walk" "trot" "woah" "easy"
All upward transitions are noises- cluck (trot), kiss (canter) and I also have a special noise for back.
