How do you start introducing a young horse to dressage?

How do you start introducing a young horse to dressage?
Try turns on the forehand too!
Start with leg yielding from the 3/4 line to the track. Work on this until they are doing it confidently, make sure your horse keeps the same rythm and stays straight.
Lateral work (leg yield away and back on the track, shoulder in and riding squares)
I started mine at 3 by getting a experienced dressage trainer and now he's 6 and doing great!
