This exercise is one of the 8 main exercises that compromises the basic controls of your horse’s body that you will use to teach all of the technical aspects. This exercise is where your horse learns to bend their ribs around your inside leg, and to move away from it.
Start this exercise in a small circle, similar to what you would do in the bending for relaxation exercise. Take your hand out to the side to steer in this circle. Add inside leg and wait for the horse to make the circle slightly bigger by drifting out slightly, then release.
