How do I

Teach my horse to side pass? I do know the basics of this but my specific question is about where you put your weight in the saddle. I have been taught to put my weight and leg on the side away from the direction of movement. But, don't our horses move to where our weight is to balance our weight?

Comments please

Horses move away from pressure. So that means if you were sidepassing to the left you would put your right leg on and lean to the left :).

Yep, that's how I figure it should be! Thanks! I have been following Clinton Andersons method with great success and this is the only movement I have issues with but maybe I have it wrong?

Ken Mcnabb taught me to go in circles and push your horse out with your leg and they side step as they move away. I would say about a 20' circle guessing
