    I am not familiar with the eventing tests - is it basic working gaits, lengthen the trot etc.?

    If so, just riding forward and balanced, making sure your horse is super responsive to your aids and will wait with your back, and ensuring that he is not dropping his shoulder or swinging his haunches on a circle.

    You've got a good grasp of the concepts by the sounds!
    Inside rein needs to have a very light contact, and should only be used for asking for flexion.
    Outside leg controls the direction of the hind legs, so should be placed behind the girth to ensure that the hind legs track straight.

    Hi there,

    The first place to start is teaching him leg yield on a 20m circle, then to a straight line and finally turn on the forehand.
    These will all teach him to move sideways off the leg into an outside rein, which is the start of beginning lateral movements.

    If he's cutting corners, it means that he is not staying upright/balanced and is more than likely dropping his inside shoulder through those turns.
    Leg yield will help to keep him upright, when you ride turns think of giving a slight leg yield feeling to pick the shoulders up and keep them straight.

    When you start the leg yield work, only ask for a couple of strides at a time, then ride forward and straight again. The key is quality, not quantity. It's much better to get 3 good strides than 10 bad ones.

    Do you have an instructor who can help you with this?
