    Good to hear. Glad the exercise is coming together for you and your horse. Once they understand the concept of being responsible for their own feet it gets much easier.

    Horses follow weight/etc. Why would the rider let them wander? is the rider who has the 'power of intention' and the choice of line and gait.

    If you're asking the purpose of the exercise, it's to teach the horse to maintain the gait when asked and be responsible for his own feet. My horse is also still learning to balance himself and not just power through the canter so it's great for him to become more comfortable in the gait without having to worry about cues from me.

    If you were looking at the fence, the alignment of your body tells him that's where to go. About half way turn your head to the farther corner. This moves your shoulders, spine, hips enough to tell him we are heading there. This is why it is important to keep your body relaxed.
