Your horse IS side passing, but it just looks kinda strange to me how its head is perfectly straight.. I like to be able to look at the left eye, for right sided passing, and vise versa. :)

For that, you just flex their head untill you can see their eye then ask for the side pass-- there are lots of youtube videos. :)

Wouldnt that be like a counter arc? Sorry I get mixed up with the two. and maybe his head is all straight cuz this is his first day doing so.. haha:)

Got it!
Looks like a good start. Just try and keep the hips inline with the shoulder. As for bending to see the eye I don't like teaching them that if I can help it. I like them to be straight through from nose to hip. Might be a personal preference, but I found it works better when moving up to half passes

haha later!:)

and it should get better./// the whole hip thing with more practice right lol?

cowgirl4753 03-11-2013 12:15 AM

Yes, practise does make perfect lol. I can't really tell what u are doing with your hands or legs. But moving you leg back further will encourage the hip to move over. And more support with the outside rein will slow the shoulder down and help the hip catch up.
