Me and Roo are starting to work on lateral work. We can leg yield and shoulder in. However I'm really one sided, I can only do it in one direction on one side of the arena. If I attempt it anywhere else I can't work out which way to bend the neck or which leg to put where. I get all confused.

I have the same problem. Get yourself a ball and with your "bad/wrong" hand just practice throwing it up in the air and catching it, also try kicking a football from the same side. You may be crap to start with but it should sharpen up your reaction time and co-ordination on this side, so it should help when you are on your horse.

I also have the same problem. No matter how much I try my horses always end up more supple/balanced to the left as thats my better rein.
