How can you learn to a horse to respond to both legs? My mare responds to left leg but not at all the right, we think her past owner may have ridden poorly and she learned to ignore it.

id start by using a little spur or stick on her right side so she starts to notice and respond to that leg. after she responds, work with that for a little and then slowly transition off the added aids. in addition, lots of bending, circles, and odd patterns might be helpful when trying to make sure she's listening. hope this helps! 💓
