Click 'n Learn: Sidepass through Gate with Clinton Anderson

Teaching your horse to sidepass makes him more maneuverable on the trail, in traffic, or when negotiating any tight turn. Use our Click 'n Learn stop-action sequence to see Clinton Anderson use sidepassing to ride his horse through a gate.

In the March '09 issue of Horse & Rider, clinician and Team H&R member Clinton Anderson demonstrates how to teach your horse to sidepass. (It's Part 3 of our do-it-yourself train-along series.)

When your horse will step laterally to the side with his whole body
in response to your cues, it makes him more easily maneuverable on the
trail, around cattle, in traffic or when negotiating tight turns--including those needed when going through a gate, as you'll see here.

Use our Click 'n Learn stop-action sequence to see how the extra
lateral control of sidepassing makes it easy for Clinton to move his horse
through a pasture gate.

Press the button on the left to play the sequence automatically all
the way through at a speed of your choosing, or use the individual buttons
on the right to proceed one image at a time.
