There are many terms in riding that are a bit vague.
Commonly used, but rarely explained.
Inside leg to outside rein is one of these vague terms.
It is a concept, a key concept for encouraging balanced movement from a horse, but many riders don’t actually know what this means or more importantly, what this feels like.
When I teach riding, I prefer to give both explanations and exercises. When we understand what we are doing, why we are doing it, and can feel it – this creates true confidence!
In today’s video, I will do just this with the inside leg to outside rein concept – demonstrate what this means with our school horse AppleJack, explain why this is important (even if you are a trail rider), and then teach you an exercise to feel this with your own horse.

P.S. This October, I will be offering an all new Balanced Riding Course. This course is not just about learning how to ride or train a horse, it is equally about learning how to see past the words that are used, to recognize what is really going on between a horse and person, and to choose what is best for you.
Stay tuned for more about the course + Free Training coming soon!
P.P.S. Hear from some of our Balanced Riding Course Alumni as they share their journey with horses, their highlights and their challenges – watch now!
