Exercise 3 • Like a sidepass or half pass in dressage


• Horse is at least straight or even has a curve with his head and tail toward the direction he’s going to travel


• Should move forward at about 45 degrees How to do it


• Left hand is across the neck, back towards the horn


• Right hand is out straight not touching the neck • Left leg not touching horse • Right leg signals right at the horse’s ribs


• A little unnatural because the horse would normally flex his ribs away from the leg pressure


• Always make sure the neck is soft; if not, stair- step back and fix it


Exercise 4


• A turn on the forehand where we rotate the hindquarters around the front legs


• When you’ve mastered this you should be able to move the horse’s hips to the right or left at any speed


How to do it • Left hand back toward the saddle horn


• Right rein out at a 45-degree angle • Use your leg in the farthest back position


• Note that the horse has a slight curvature toward the direction of travel


• When you start you should be happy with keeping your horse straight in the exercise


• Les works up to where he has the horse bent with the hip leading and the ribs and shoulder out of the way


Many novice riders get so focused on what they want their horse to do that they forget about themselves.
