Plant that pivot foot, darn it!! ...with video!

So today was day two of us working on pivoting for our upcoming show memorial day weekend. Skippy (my horse) has picked up the concept rather quickly. She is/was a reiner, so moving her shoulders around is nothing new. There was definietly improvement from last session, I kept having to "bump" her shoulder with my tumb to get her to turn. Today she only needed a small nudge to get going then she kept it pretty much the whole way around.

I think we're on the right track but I just can't get her to plant that RH leg.

Enjoy the video... excuse the crop hanging out of my pocket like it's a tail. I need tighter jeans to pull off that look!

I can't watch it on bandwidth but I would suggest doing what I do under saddle as well. Sidepass her a step or two, try turning, sidepass, turn, sidepass, turn. Puts the hip back underneath of her and will at the same time keep her forward motion. Should help. That's just my guess since most haunch turn problems tend to come from blowing the hip out. Hoping my guess is right. LOL

Ok, try again. I forgot to hit save on the preferences.

I think you want her to be rocked back a tiny bit more onto her hind feet, so stand a bit more in front of her shoulder to stop her having ANY forward movement at all. Rock her back infintisimally onto her hind before you even ask her for the sideways step over. This will prepare her better.

She seems to be going more forward to me, may help to try backing her up (say, like 3 good steps back) and then pushing her front end over without any pause. That way she gets more under her butt. Good luck!
