Destiny will change her lead if I kick the you-know-what out of her, and those changes are few and far between, and sometimes at that, she only switches the front.
My plan with her, which we've already started, is to get our simple changes down pat. I've been cantering on the right lead, turning down the school, trot, pick up the new lead, which she does 95% of the time, I've also been reducing the number of trot steps between the change. I plan on starting to ask for a certain lead, from the trot, on the long side of the arena, be that the correct lead or a counter-canter. If she starts to get the hang of that, I'm at a loss of what to do next. I've been told that once she does what I'm trying to get at, to just attempt a flying change across the school, first asking with my leg, and then backing it up with a crop...
Is what I'm doing correct? Am I missing something? Suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
P.s. ;) I'd like to get her doing a flying change when I ask by september, is that possible or am I dreaming too big?
