I'm trying to teach two of my horses to sidepass. They have there abc's but can't put words together yet! Anyway what I have been doing with them is: Asking for a step sideways and holding the pressure until I get one step to the side then I take the pressure off.
I'm running into a problem though. One of the horses move sideways (not the best but he moves both ends almost directly sideways), really easily. The problem is, is you ask and he moves and I release, but he keeps going and going and going! How do I get him to take on step then wait then take one step then wait etc?
With the other one he doesn't really go sideways. It's either forwards, backwards, moves his hind end or front end. I have to hold the pressure for a long time until he takes a sorta sideways step then I release, but it's still not really sideways.
How should I go about these problems? Any suggestions would be helpful. I've really only side passed a horse that knows it.
