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
- pushing the inside rein against the horse’s neck to try to hold him out on the circle.
- crossing the hand over the horse’s neck in an attempt to ‘drag’ him out onto the circle.
- 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.
