See what difference that makes? A lot of people don't believe it until it happens. The famous aha moment

Way to go, girls

Forgot, the right lead.....if you have both legs back, she gets a confusing signal. And of course she picks the lead that's easier for her, the left one.

It really did make a huge difference, almost like the miracle fix you see in commercials.

And yeah, she definitely has that preference. I also overthink the transition a lot, but now, I just keep my inside leg up by my girth, pull the inside rein slightly back towards her wither, and put on my outside leg. Her transition still isn't smooth but the fact that she gets the correct lead is a step in the right direction.

And if you give with the inside hand to let that first "jump" out she will be even happier

I usually just "throw away" the reins after she tries the transition, if she gets the correct lead.. I try to work her into a bend and into a little bit of contact and if not, we go back to a trot and try again when she's back to a steady pace. Her reward for the correct lead is usually a couple circles and after three, she gets a nice walk break to think about it and relax again.

Yup, and start towards the closed end of a circle or coming out of the second corner of the short side....you have the bend automatically. Later you can work on the straight line. Right now she needs all the help she can get.

Since I'm operating from a cell, I'd rather let Jore explain

Yep! I always do the canter transitions on a circle, although sometimes I'll practice her left lead on the long side when I'm in a group lesson since we usually go large.. although we all practiced transitions within a gait on a big circle back on Tuesday. Her extended canter was pretty good (as one could assume haha) so we ended up going almost large just because we didn't want to run over anyone.

And OnTarget, if you look to the top left of the forum threads. (if there's subforums, it's under that) There's just a little rectangular button called "New Thread".. just click that and you're good to go. And thank you!

I never made my journal entry for the ninth, so here it goes:

November 9, 2012

I honestly think that was our best ride yet, or awfully close to it. She got her canter lead both ways, without too much hassle! We also worked on extending/collecting at the trot, and her extensions were really nice. Although, she wanted to canter off when I started sitting, but she figured it out after a lap.

I'm going to see about maybe getting a video today, but I'm not sure. It'll be my first time heading down this weekend because we went to the Justin Bieber concert up in Boston!
