    On the surface, this sounds like a straightforward exercise. However, as with everything in dressage, nothing is ever as simple as it first seems.

    Changing the rein across the long diagonal can present quite a few challenges for the dressage rider.

    In this podcast episode, we take a look at what can go wrong, some of the common rider mistakes, and how you can ride this exercise for maximum marks in a dressage test.

    Traditionally, the leg-yield is ridden on a straight line, usually from the centerline to the outside track. It can also be ridden from the outside track to the centerline, or from one side of the arena across to the other. 

    During those exercises, the horse should remain straight in his body and only have a slight flexion at the poll away from the direction in which he is moving.

    But when leg-yielding in and out on a circle, the horse must have a uniform bend through his body (rather than remaining straight in his body) because he is on a circle. 

    Here's how to do it!

    When negotiating a circle, turn, or corner, it’s not uncommon to see novice horses and riders leaning inwards around them.

    This is often given the nickname “motorbiking” because it looks the same as a motorbike turning.

    In this podcast episode, we’re going to explain why bikers lean, why horse riders shouldn’t lean, and what to do instead.
