Leg cues for western and english are essentially the same. For the left lead, move your right leg back on his flank to move his hind end in towards the center of the arena and ask for the canter (lope). For a young horse, you might also want to lift the inside (left) rein to help your horse get lift in his left shoulder to promote taking the correct lead. As your horse becomes more proficient at taking the correct lead, you can begin to work on the urgency of picking it up from the walk, jog, or standing still rather than picking it up by increasing speed at the trot.
