GottaRide, actually pushing the AIR is rhythmic pressure, which is the driving game. And in the driving game you should actually only have to give the horse "the look" and they move. Steady pressure you should only have to touch the hair, because in the saddle that's what you will have to do

free_sprtd, you're welcome. :) Hopefully that will help. One thing I just realized I didn't post is that if you have to use rhythmic pressure IN ADDITION to steady pressure, like the tapping, start very lightly and SLOWLY increase the intensity until he tries to move. You want to make the wrong thing uncomfortabel, but not painful. Good luck!
