The inside rein is just there as an aid to keep the bend if you start to lose it. Just start walking your horse on a circle asking for an energetic walk and let the magical pull of the circle provide you with a natural bend and outside rein connection. I've been meaning to put a video up of it since I keep finding myself offering up this training suggestion.
    A video would be nice, but I think I got the gist of what you are saying. I'll try that tomorrow. Thanks for the suggestion!

    I forgot to add, you'll know you're in business if your horse's back comes up and literally pushes your outside shoulder 6"s higher and starts chewing gently on the bit. It's really cool when the horse really comes through from behind.
