Aids are physiological responses to stimulus. Aids do not involve memory.
Cues are a signal for a specific learned behavior. It involves memory.
An aid would be more in the line of putting your calf on the horse's sides
to raise his back--it's an automatic physical response.
A cue for a learned behavior, for example: wiggling your index finger for
the horse to back up.
Our Icelandic Horses learn leg aids and cues very easily.
