Training a horse to pick up leads.
Hey guys I just got a 5 year old qh and he is pretty well trained all except he can't pick up his leads at all. I'm not sure how to train him to pick up the right leads. How do you guys do it?

First you MUST have complete control over the whole horses body. If you can not control the horses hip and such you will never get the correct lead. They also have to have the muscle and balance. Start by getting the horse responsive to your leg. Once you can get the horse to walk and move their hip over at the same time you will find that picking up the correct lead will be a piece of cake.
Once you have done what nrhreiner suggested you should be able to get the correct leads. If it still does not work, a circle in a steady, controlled trot just before the transition should help him pick up the correct lead.
