Yeah, going from canter to trot then picking up the other lead is an option. But for a flying lead change, you take the leg that signaled for the canter lead and put it back into normal position while the other leg asks for the different lead. I know it sounds confusing lol
@kayleemoon I would try that but I don't know how to do the actual lead change itself yet..My instructor hasn't given me a lesson on that yet. I'm sorry I wasn't more clear😅
Well you could start off with a simple lead change from a canter to a trot back to a canter when you want to change
