Me and my mare Andie have been doing a lot of training this season for barrels and other barrel patterns. She's not getting around the barrel like she should though. She's goes pretty wide (wider then you should) and then cuts in tight to make it around the barrel.--My mom noticed tonight while I was riding, that she's not always on the correct lead when we start out which may be affecting our practice runs. I want to catch this early so she doesn't think she can stay on the wrong lead for the pattern.- I'm really hoping that we will be ready for fair next year! :)
What are some tricks to getting her on the correct lead? And switching leads as well?
Thanks for the help!
