    My horse wont pick up the lead going clockwise, he's an OTT THB soo some people say he's not use to it but when I lunge him he's fine, gets both leads perfect, I've tried everything I can think of and he still wont get it should I jus give it time and keep trying what im doing which is inside leg behind the girth, inside rein up n outside rein out, or can you help and give me some pointers please?

    One horse I ride she gets the lead if you put your inside rein up and squeeze with your inside leg.

    I also ride a tb and he gets the lead if I use my outside hand and outside leg.

    I have always been taught (for english):

    Inside leg on the girth (controlling the speed and pushing him into your outside rein)
    Inside rein using your opening rein
    Outside leg behind the girth (asking the horse to put his hindquarters to the inside) - I think you said you used your inside leg behind...?
    Outside rein elastic; controlling the speed, collection and the amount of bend to the inside.

    And for western the only different thing I have been told is to slightly lift the inside rein to pick up the shoulder and that will cue the horse. Oh... and kiss.

    Not sure though... Someone please correct me if I'm wrong or missing something so I can learn from it.

    Yea that's what I was trying tonight when I was riding him, and like he would go onto it do one stride n come bak to a trot no matter how much leg I put on him I even got my coach on him, she only got it once, he's jus not use to it I guess, but he seemed to listen preety well tonight to that for a fouryear old OTT. Even my coach sed that soo, ill keep trying ill give you both and update in about a week.:) thank you :) ill keep you posted:)

    Practice your turn on the forehand and get it really light and proper. So when you put the cue on the horse will position itself with it's hind end to the inside and should pick it up easier.

    That's what I was told to do...?
