How do you teach a horse shoulder?

How do you ride the shoulder-in? In a correct shoulder-in, the horse is bent around the rider’s inside leg and shows flexion to the inside, away from the direction of travel. The easiest way to teach this is often from a 10m circle coming out of the short side of the arena.

How do you ask for a shoulder-fore?

Ask for a little flexion on your inside rein to keep your horse soft through his neck. Keep your shoulders parallel with your horse’s shoulders – you should be in shoulder-fore too, but watch you don’t get pushed to the outside of your saddle.

How do you stop a horse from falling into you?

How to prevent a horse from falling in

  1. pushing the inside rein against the horse’s neck to try to hold him out on the circle.
  2. crossing the hand over the horse’s neck in an attempt to ‘drag’ him out onto the circle.
  3. pushing more and more with the inside leg to hold the horse up and stop him falling in.

What is the difference between shoulder-in and shoulder fore?

In a correctly executed shoulder-in, the horse’s inside hind leg moves toward its outside fore leg, which creates three tracks. Shoulder-fore has less angle and bend.

What is the difference between shoulder-in and leg yield?

What is Shoulder-In? As with leg-yield, the shoulder-in requires the horse to bend away from the direction of travel. Unlike leg-yield, the horse must have a pronounced lateral bend and will need to bring the forehand off the arena track when performing the movement.
