so, i want to start eventing with Dixie, and first i plan to work on dressage. So, can someone tell me how to perform a leg yield without confusing my horse and how to do flying lead changes? thanks!

Only those who risk going too far, can possibly find, how far they can go.

Before you start doing leg yeilds and flying changes, make sure that she can respond nicely to direct and inderect rein, different leg pressures shifting your weight and such.
For flying changes start with a strong canter and switch your aids to the other side, start by over exaggerating them.

You don't need flying changes in dressage until Advanced...
Also tbh trying to teach a correct dressage flying change yourself is not going to work.
If you don't already know how to leg yield, have a trainer teach you and your horse. You also don't need to leg yield until Training anyway but it's a good tool for flatwork.

Basically you're just be doing different sizes of circles lol. But yeah leg yields are a good exercise on the flat.
