Leg Cues, the right way?
I've heard many different ways of giving leg cues. I want to know what way others use. To turn left, should I apply pressure with my left leg onto my horse’s side so he is turning around my leg. OR should I apply pressure from the right side so that he turns away from my pressure? I've heard that it can be done either way, but what tends to be more common?
Also have heard of some riders using both legs which seems to incorporate both methods, so to turn left I put the left leg back and the right leg forward so I am pivoting to the left.
