UN­DER­STAND­ING THE AIDS

Your Horse (UK) - - Your Horse's Training -

Stephen sim­pli­fies what each aid mean. “Your horse should go for­wards from your in­side leg and ac­cept the con­tact on the out­side rein, which con­trols the out­side shoul­der,” he says. “Your out­side leg con­trols the quar­ters, and the in­side rein looks af­ter the flex­ion and gives the horse his di­rec­tion.” Your horse needs to un­der­stand that he’ll be con­trolled by the out­side aids and ac­ti­vated and sup­pled by the in­side, to the point where you feel it’s pos­si­ble to re­lease the in­side rein and your horse will still hold his own bend.
