Changing Sides (Or Changing Eyes)

It's good to do all of your training exercises on both sides of the horse. Sometimes a horse prefers to keep you in one eye (maybe the left eye) and will move his head (or move you :-)) to keep you in that same eye for most of the time.

Practicing the ground exercises from both sides will help even our your horse. The Changing Eyes / Sides exercises are particularly helpful.

In these pictures, the owner stands at the fence and asks her horse to travel in a semi-circle around her going from left to right. Then she asks the horse to change eyes, and travel in a semi-circle from right to left.
