I'll be sure to bring the video camera - and the first aid kit ;)
I don't know how kindly my rather sensitive soul of a dumb blood will cope with big western spurs - you could try him in a shanked bit too, I think he'd really appreciate it!!!

Surprisingly it was quite 'cold' the evening those photo's were taken - about 16C :P
It was a balmy 36C yesterday though, lovely!!!

Google is your friend!

Lateral movement - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

It's actually a pretty good article. There's sub-articles for each movement as well.

I suppose it depends on the particular school of dressage you're learning. There are many, many websites that describe leg yield as a lateral movement (including artofriding.com, sustainabledressage.com) and in books such as Equine Fitness, by Jec Ballou; though I know Kurd Albrecht Von Zeigner says it is not a lateral movement in his book, The Elements of Dressage (even though he also says that the horse should always be moving on a single track, like a train, unless doing lateral movements, which is a bit contradictory if leg yield is not a lateral movement)

Fair enough - though lateral work is generally described as having bend. Leg yield has none. It is a stepping stone, a precurser to lateral movements so often gets lumped in as one when it is in fact not.
