    Howrsegirl, you really need to find a trainer to help you. I don't think you are going to be able to DIY right now.

    I'm going to get instruction on riding, but this is something I would really like to do myself.
    I've taught my mare so much as far as groundwork so it's not like I can't do it. I just need to find the proper way, and go from there.
    Not trying to be rude, just saying :)

    It's important that you teach the pivot the correct way and not the wrong way, because then you have to UNDO and RE-TEACH. That was more or less what Spurstop was getting to. If your horse is crossing over in the front the way you said...you have no forward motion, and are most likely putting backward pressure on the lead shank AND are walking into your horse, and being to far back on the horse instead of being up front near the nose and "leading" your horse around the pivot.
