THE THREE L’s APPROACH

It is often said that riding horses is “simple” but it is not “easy.” Truer words have not been spoken! The horse is a “simple” creature in its needs. The horse wants consistency, leadership, fairness, clarity and kindness. The horse wants to “get along” with its human partner. Humans oftentimes ‘’over complicate” the communication process when interacting with horses, which leads to frustration and anxiety in both the horse and the human.

Humans can be effective leaders when in the saddle by applying the “Three L’s” approach when requesting movement or control from the horse. The “Three L’s are LOOK, LIFT and LEG.

When requesting a movement from the horse the human needs to LOOK in the direction they wish to go, and twist their shoulders in line with their eyes in order to create a pre-signal for the horse. “Where the eyes look, the body follows.” As the human “LOOKS” with their eyes, head and body in the direction they wish to go, they need to “LIFT” (not pull) the reins upward along the line of the horses shoulder and then point with their thumb (if riding in one hand) or pinkie finger (if riding in two hands) in the direction desired. As the human “LOOKS and LIFTS” to cue a direction, they need to apply the opposite LEG to the horse in a squeezing motion with their calf. Here is an example of the how to use the “Three L’s”: If the human wishes to go to the right, they look to the right with their eyes, head and shoulders, lift the right rein (if in two hands) or both reins (if in one hand) along the line of the shoulder and point to the right as the squeeze the horse, using the calf muscle in the LEFT leg in a “toe in/heel out” position. By looking, lifting and using the leg in this manner the human can firmly and fairly request a movement that is clearly understood by the horse. Like all aspects of horsemanship, the Look, Lift and Leg approach takes feel, timing and experience. Once the human understands and applies the “Three L’s” approach they will find a new level of clarity, confidence and fun when in the saddle!
