Sidepass without Fence

Once the horse is really good on the fence sidepassing, and backing up really good (so responds well to both reins), then you can try it off the fence. It’s a good idea to stay close to the fence so that if your horse walks forward the fence will stop them if they ignore your hands.

Success Tips:

- Move only slightly off the fence in the beginning, then move further away with each successful try.

Common Problems/Mistakes:

- Attempting this before your horse can back off both reins really well.
- Starting this part before mastering all of the previous exercises.
