John Wicks Clinic: Softening to the Inside Leg & Rein
7.18 minutes – In this video John talks his students through teaching their horses how to respond to leg pressure on a small circle using one rein and one leg at a time. John explains how he will use this exercise to teach the horse to have a better attitude. If the horse is pinning its ears, John will keep his leg on because if he takes his leg off while they’re pinning their ears he’s rewarding that behavior. This is an exercise John does with a horse that won’t let him use his legs or spurs or has a bad attitude to leg aids because they have been taught the incorrect response to leg aids.
