^^ Excellent post Ricci. That is how I do it too. Once they kinda get the concept down, one thing that really helps is to open and close gates on them. I always pull the gate toward me and just use reins and legs to keep their body even with the gate. This really helps if they have a habit of swinging (move their front to the side and then move thier butt, then move their front again instead of all at once). I cannot ask for a sidepass without using the reins at all on my horses because if I only ask with leg pressure, that means I want them to do a forehand turn so I have to use reins as well.
