Haunches in...WHAT??

Ok, I was searching stuff on the internet about getting leads, and someone said, get your horse's haunches in! What does that mean? (I fell pretty dumb for not knowing this lol but we learn something new every day right?)

No no! This will teach your horse to go into the canter a. Unbalanced, b. Not correct. At least this is not what I have ever done. I usually ask my guy to ho into the canter in a corner so he can balance and use my inside leg nd put my outside leg a bit back. He has issues getting his left lead and right now is awful at the canter cause he's had time off.

Maybe you can post the article link.

I am sure there is an explanation there.

Haunches in means just that, haunches pushed in towards the rail.

I am suspecting one would use the haunches in to ask for a lead departure to exaggerate the cue. For a heavy one-sided horse or for a rider that has weight shifting problem, I suppose a "haunches in" would facilitate a lead departure. My trainer had me use it for a flying lead change when the horse switched in front but was cross firing in the back. Technically not a true haunches in, but it did shift his weight to other side & he switched behind.

Could you please explain the difference between supporting inside leg and putting your outside leg back and asking for the canter and supporting inside leg and putting your outside leg back and asking the haunch to step to the inside, besides the increase of speed going into the canter?

I am supposing the article the OP read has that answer.
