It is all about outside aids. Outside, outside, outside.

Well - allot of riding is about outside aids.......

No inside rein at all, outside rein on shoulder, outside leg at girth. Outside rein must keep shoulder underneith itself, outside leg pushes shoulder over.

Back end must drop, front legs must cross over one another.

Start at walk. Always ;)

So after that day he was super great, he has been okayish but not near what he was that one day. Am I right in assuming he might be a little stiff/sore from using those (newish) muscles so hard that one day, so he hasn't been as ..willing to do it these last two days?

That's right, when you start doing sit up's from never doing them - you are going to be sore. Same with your horse.

It takes time, every ride is different - but you can remain persistant and consistant.

1 day at a time.

*nods* The last two days, after working so hard on Monday, he hasn't been able to use himself near as well, but he tried and that's all I'm looking for.
