As others have said, our horses are all trained to move the hind quarters away from the pressure, so you get a nice, tight left turn by left leg, slightly back behind the cinch, to get the hind quarters to move right.
It's also a good training excercise to do this backing up around turns or obstacles....same method, by 'steering' the hind quarters away from your leg pressure.
On the sixth day, God created the Quarter Horse.
On the seventh day, he Painted the good ones.
