    I bend them opposite to my motion, simply because they need to learn to keep that bend in their body to work a cow well in the camp for campdrafting. But I also teach a straight side-pass.

    Wow. Thanks for all the help and tips everyone! I didn't get to ride today because I had to help prepare for the fair, but I'll try it tomorrow. :)

    Please explain "side pass"

    From reading the instructions on the aids given to the horse
    I guess
    the horse is moving forwards to a barrier at right angles which blocks the route forwards
    , so then you ask the horse to move sideways

    Please explain the term "Side pass".

    Am I correct to think that when you are approaching a gate
    You need to flip the latch on the gate to allow it to open
    So you push the horse forwards, lean over and flip the latch
    Then get the horse to move left (or right) sideways by moving one leg over the other, allowing the gate to open up.
    Then you move back right to pass thru the gate?

    If its that, then I could do it.
    If I've got it wrong, then you'll have to show me (and the horse)

    For a moment I thought you were writing about "shoulder ins", or "half passes"

    Sidepassing is only one of the manuvers you need to do a gate properly. You side pass, back/forward , pivot, sidepass in the other dirrection.
    The location of the hinges and if you are right or left handed determines if the horse pass through the gate backwards or rides through.
    Sidepassing is just the horse moving sideways, left or right without any forward or backward motion.
