The correct diaganol, is to rise when the outside leg moves forward, and then sit when it moves backward towards you. Forward=rise Backward=Sit
Rise and fall with the shoulder on the wall
I've been taught to sit when the horses outside leg moves forward but it's the same as rising when the horses inside led is moving forward aswell. And then if you realise your on the wrong diagonal sit trot for 2 beats and rise again
Hope this helps😊
The way that I've learned it is when the horses inside leg moves forward rise with it.

Hi Marissa-

A phrase many people use is "rise and fall with the leg on the wall". Which simply means with the front leg of a horse is closed to the side of the arena goes up; you go up and when it hits the ground again, you go back down! Hope that helps!
Post (rise) as your horses outside front leg goes forward.
