Not all horses are trained to turn off the leg, or to stop/slow down with pressure from the thigh. This makes everything sound frustratingly simple, though I'm sure that's why you shared it.

Wow! How informative! I think you are right, why did I spend YEARS learning how to ride, working my butt off, and taking advice and criticism from professionals when all I had to do was watch this 3 minute video on Youtube.

Dang all the wasted time!!!

I'd say this (as well as other video instructions) are typical directions given at the trail riding barn to the person first or second time on horse.

So I've been wasting money on lessons and clinics for 19 years when all I had to do was watch this video? I'm going to show this to my trainer and tell her she's ripping me off. Thank you HowCast!
