Re: The right leg

If you're cantering on the wrong leg you should feel it, it will feel unbalanced and uncomfortable, just go back into trot and ask again, try moving your outside leg just behind the girth and leave your inside where it is when you ask. If you lunge your horse, watch his legs when asking for canter, he should kick off with his outside back leg. Trotting, just make sure you're sitting as his outside front leg goes back and you should be fine :) x
