What does an ideal leg yield look like? What does it feel like?

Any video links?

Thanks. :D

The horse is reaching under your outside seat bone with the inside hind. Effortlessly.

Do one yourself to find out how they feel !

Make sure the shoulders and hips stay in line with each other - the legs cross over and the horse is still working over the back fairly well - which is slightly tricky because this is not a movement that leads towards collection - its sort of contrary but does prove ovediance and straightness - stretch in the legs etc. The Half Pass is on a bend and travels also in a diagonal but the horse is truly collected.
