    No idea how the visitor messages work. I hope if I reply here, it will be visible to TXhorseman. I'll try and see...

    Hmmm...my response was 7,717 characters and only 1,000 are allowed. So I'm transferring it to my journal thread:

    Hello, bsms.

    My desire in "Learning to ride...." was to warn against too much emphasis on pressure. Perhaps, I shouldn’t have included the idea of the outside leg blocking the haunches.

    A horse's skeleton seems to negate bending to match an arc, though the spine can rotate as well as bend laterally. Still, the image helps teach lateral bending of the body – to whatever extent – as well as the neck.

    Regarding training: I know little of the French language, but could probably get a French speaker to turn with me if we were walking casually with my arm around the French speaker’s shoulders. If I turn, the French speaker would probably turn with me.

    A relaxed horse responds to subtle influences. Not knowing its training, I can usually obtain a stop without reins after a few minutes getting the horse accustomed to my body moving with its body. I, then use changes in my body to influence the horse. If I stop moving, the horse usually stops moving.
