Oh okay, that makes sense. Thanks bubba
If your horse isn't responding to your leg.. maybe you aren't sitting on your horse efficiently. I had a lesson today and we went over different positions. I was wrapping my legs around my horse, which wasn't putting my legs on my horse, but they were kind of just there.
Then I put more pressure on the inside of my foot so my legs were on him and brought my legs onto my horse. It immediately changed how he responded to my legs and we stayed on the rail for once. So definitely check your position.
But I'd definitely keep using your leg, but add a crop in there to help. Good luck.
