Your right hand and upper body channels and directs the movement of the horse's right front leg.

Destination, speed and rhythm, and changes in them, come from your focus, breathing and internal energy and rhythm - from doing it yourself, together with your horse.

That's really all there is - mirroring of bodies and blending of thought and motion. Each idea implies a lot more, but I believe it's really fundamentally that simple.

I expect I'll have more to say about what's contained in that simplicity . . .
