Leg yielding is basically when a horse responds to pressure you apply. So if you want to teach your horse start on the ground. Simply apply pressure with the palm of your hand or an aid like the handle of a crop...? Until your horse moves away. (you apply pressure and he/she yields to it and moves away.) once you have the foundations you use it when riding, a great way to practise is to stand your horse square and ask it to move sideways both left and right. Once you start to ride using this aid it helps with balance, for example on a right hand rein circle you can have your horse round but it may still be moving very straight or even have it's head carriage to the outside, if you apply pressure on the inside leg (right leg) and tighten your contact a little on the same rein your horse will move with it's head a little inside, with more balance and more supple.
