The “Go” Button

Button #4 is known as the “Go” button.  This button is located in the area of the horse’s flank.  When we direct pushing energy toward the flank area of the horse, this engages the hind end forward.  When lunging a horse, a low to level flick from the whip toward the flank will send a push signal for the horse to go forward.  When riding, our leg aids send the horse forward.
