Leads start in the back, thus you need hip control
Move hip into lead.
Do not tip nose tot he outside of the lead. This is an incorrect method that I myself used, years back and many clinics ago. It was used to try and force a horse onto the lead by actually having them drop that inside shoulder,and also uses the wrong idea that the lead fore lead is the start of that particular lead,when in fact, it is the last beat of that stride
, and not the first
Move hip into lead, that sets up the first beat. (outside hind leg ) second beat, inside hind and outside front hitting ground at same time.Third beat, lead front leg hitting the ground
You hold inside shoulder up with inside rein, then drive horse up into lead with outside leg
Can't believe there are professional trainers out there actually telling people to tip the nose to the outside of the lead!!!!!!
