HOW TO AVOID LOSING THE OUTSIDE SHOULDER & CORRECT THE QUARTERS LEADING WHEN RIDING HALF-PASS

To help keep control of the outside shoulder when riding Half Pass  take both hands across in the direction of travel.  In this way the outside rein is against the shoulder avoiding too much neck bend.  (Half Pass right, both hands to the right, Half Pass left, both hands to the left)      

If you find the quarters start to lead, a serious error, ride a couple of steps Shoulder In, before re-starting half-pass.
