I mean leg cues, sidepassing, forehand turns, haunch turns, leg yielding, giving to the bridle/bumping up, lead departures, counter arcs, all that.
The two year olds I'm riding for a trainer now are actually behind schedule due to personal setbacks and already sidepass, forehand turn, lope circles, lead departures from the walk, haunch turns, rollbacks, stops, and are starting their work on the flag (Reined cowhorses is what they are)
They aren't flawless but that's something I gauge by. You don't have to work them into the ground either. If you do it right, they don't need a ton of time and are correct from the very beginning. Then you don't have to work harder to get it right, and they end up working a lot less than you think. Plus, taking care of them...i.e. a long warm up and cool out, hosing of the legs, etc.
Pssh.I didn't pick up the wrong lead
It's called a counter canter...
...A very advanced maneuver.
