I teach all of my colts from the ground with gentle tugs and praise. When she is standing, I pull to her left for her right foot and vice versa. Been doing it this way for 13 years, and they always learn quickly and well. Every time we stop I ask them to park out. In a very short time, I can ask them from anywhere on the line. Just a whoa and a small tug and they will park out. Especially useful when you are showing a horse to someone on the line, and need them to park out at the end of the lunge line without having to go up and place their feet for them.
How I transfer the cue to undersaddle is when I ask them, I will tap their shoulder right about where my toe would reach. When I ask for the left foot, I tap tap the left shoulder. Right and right.
