Ana 1 year ago Reply Love this approach! Keep them relaxed so they want to perform the maneuver. Basic, sound advice. Denise Castillo 6 months ago Reply Thank you for presenting lead change from a simple and relaxed perspective. I’ve struggled with lead changes for the first time with the horse I’m currently riding. He came to me as a green-broke aged gelding. Trying to push all of the right buttons has not worked. Keeping it simple and relaxed was the key for him and the advice I sought was frustratingly complex. Thank you for giving me “permission” to let him figure it out without overwhelming him…and me!
