    Flying Lead Changes

    I'm not asking for help in teaching a horse to do them on command but if you give some advice that would be fine. Today I want to know if most horses can naturally do them or if it's just a select few. I know my mare can do them because she's switching leads to the wrong one at shows. But can a lot of horses do them without training. It's just something I thought about a lot and would like to know the answer to.

    Most horses can, but not neccessarily u/s, because they have to deal with the rider being unbalanced.

    Painter does them all the time lunging/chasing and he's done a few u/s when I went across the diagonal. I was asking for a simple change and he switched before I askerd him to trot

    I've never seen a horse who can't do them free in a pasture, unless because of injury etc. It's just getting them balanced and on cue under saddle that is the hurdle!

    Yeah, all horses can naturally do them I think...... It's probably hard to figure out the balance of it with us on their backs though! Haha.
