What to do if your horse isn’t going straight in the run down (approaching the stop)?

Original Question

Hi John and Angie!
If the horse wasn’t going straight in the run down (approaching the stop), would you just pick up on him and guide him in the opposite direction?
Cheers, Lisa

John’s Answer

Hi Lisa,
I wouldn’t hold him straight, I would let him go crocked about 30-45 degrees off straight and then steer him off the other way. Keep repeating this until he starts to figure out when he goes crocked he gets corrected. 
Then when he stays straight leave him alone, the straight line is the release and then he can figure out where he’s meant to be.

You are on the right track.
Glad you are enjoying the videos.
