I was told it was to be like a pair of scissors for sharp turns outside front inside back so the front is moving left and the rear is moving right. Otherwise I use outside leg for simple directions, so the horse is moving away from pressure. When I first started riding I did just the opposite. I was told it was wrong so I switched. Vida was very confused for awhile
Now I have a headache
If I want just her butt to move over I rein to the butt, leg back in the opposite direction I want the butt to go. If I want her front to move over I rein to the shoulder, leg to the front again in the opposite direction.
Is that right? I sure hope no one who knows how to ride ever has to ride my horse
