What you start doing is...
Say your horse is neck-reined and you want them to learn to work side to side off of your legs... You start neck-reining them and where you normally would maybe only use your hands add in your legs. Start to encourage them to listen to your legs when your legs accompany your hands and reward them. Reward reward reward. Applaud them and give affection. Definitely. But only when you get what you want. Be cautious with your legs and don't make them jumpy with your legs. You need to ease into the legs- match leg cues with hand cues - and then ease out of the hands. And fundamentally you can do that with any cue once you establish that the leg cue is the same as the hand cue. Sorry, that was really brief.
Thanks! It's fine that it was brief, it was to the point and informative! Thank you very much :)
