Leg Yield Series Part 1: the Walk with Wendy Murdoch


Excerpt from the Horseman’s Gazette Issue No. 17

The leg yield might seem like the simplest of lateral movements because it is typically taught first…. however, riding a truly correct leg yield requires that you keep your horse straight, perpendicular to the ground while moving forward and sideways.

 The original length of this lesson is 28 minutes 10 seconds
