Exercise - The "Box"
       Test your horse's ability to move off your leg and respond to cues by trying the exercise we call the "box".   

       Start with your horse standing still and relaxed, ask her to sidepass to the right, then back, sidepass to the left, walk forward to the starting point and stop.

        The movements should be smooth and fluid.
