I start by doing simple changes wherever I can. Figure eights, across the diagonals, serpentines, anything!!
To build on what Kamryn said, u can do figure eights over a pole. It makes it easier for the horse to change and understand what u are asking for when u first start out
Thanks!!! So i'm doing great!!!
I use surpintins and figer eights where in both you are consistently changing direction!
