TURN ON THE FORE­HAND

Your Horse (UK) - - Better Riding -

As you ride this move­ment your horse’s back should re­main straight. Only ask for a cou­ple of steps to be­gin with, so your horse doesn’t get anx­ious. Once he’s happy, build up the num­ber of steps.

Try this

On the left rein, rid­ing off the track, ask for halt. Ask for a lit­tle flex­ion to the left. Use your left leg to ask him to move his hindquar­ters to the right. Half-halts on your out­side rein pre­vent your horse walk­ing off. Through­out the move­ment, main­tain a slight flex­ion at the poll to the in­side. Once you’ve com­pleted the move­ment, walk for­wards in a straight line.
