Well, I have posted about flying lead changes here:
http://lorienstable.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=48

You can read that thread to see what a flying lead change is. Once you've done that, you can go ahead and think about the other answers. I wouldn't want to do your homework for you Wink

But if you post about what you *think* the answers are, I'd be happy to try to guide you in the right direction.

Hi,
I am trying to get my flying changes down. I am riding a horse that supposedly knows how to do them. I have tried a few different ways and just can't get it right. I have placed a pole down the diagonal line a few strides from the corner. I count to the pole, each time I count the horses hooves hit the ground, during suspension over the pole I ask for the change. I noticed you said to do it as the front fore hits the ground, not during suspension. Should i do it on the last stride before the pole or the stride over the pole when the front fore is already in front of the pole and the hind is behind the pole?
Also, what should I be doing with my hands? Should I give her room and release a little over the pole? Should I use an indirect rein in the direction i want to go? Should I keep her real tight on bit? Should I pull back over the pole to get her off her front end? I am sitting deep in the saddle and trying not to put my weight forward. Help! Confused
