How do you ask a horse to turn with your legs? My instructor just keeps saying use your legs and I’m like that’s not enough information

If your turning the right, push with your left leg, if your turning to the left push with your right leg
My instructor always says inside leg, outside rein! (Basically squeeze in your inside leg and pull the outside rein slightly i think)
