Okay, so we've all heard the phrase "inside rein, outside leg" for getting a horse to turn. Fabulous, but....why?
From a training point of view, that doesn't necessarily make sense! We teach our horses to yield or step away from pressure, not turn in to it, so wouldn't it make more sense to use your inside leg?
This is just something I thought about today while riding. I neck rein, and I've found that when I use my inside leg, I get a much faster and cleaner turn than when I use my outside leg.
