Finding the Lead

I need help figuring out what lead my horse lands on when landing a jump. I think I'm paying attention, but my instructor is always calling out for me to get the correct lead after landing. We did an exercise last week where I was supposed to just go in the direction of whatever lead he landed on, and I got it wrong EVERY TIME!

What am I missing? Why can I not tell when he lands on the wrong lead?

You'll feel your pelvis and leg slightly pulled forward to the side of the lead you're on.

So if he's on the left lead, my left side will pull forward?

When you're cantering around on the flat, do you not know when you're on the wrong lead?


The hardest part isn't finding what we need to be, it's being content with who we are.

Yes, I do know when I'm on the wrong lead when I'm on the flat. It's when we land that I can't tell.
