Best Answer

The short answer is "height", and there are two elements to the mechanics of this: First, just measure from your right big toe to your right finger tip. Now measure from your left big toe to your right finer tip. The diagonal distance is longer, correct? Thus, with your left foot on the floor, your right hand reaches higher. Second, you want to increase the height still further on the reach of your right handed lay-up. If you thrust your left leg up you will be off balance and the energy of the left leg lift will provide more enery to the left side. Conversely, if you put all the effort into the right leg lift, the energy is mostly transfered to the right side and lifts the right hand higher. Coach Paul, Fundy Dragons Basketball

How do you get your horse to drop its head?

While riding, use your seat to push your horse in to the bit. When you are walking, watch (or feel) for the horse's leg stride. When your horse's left leg goes forward, sqeeze your left hand. Same to your right. As soon as your horse feels softer in your hands after doing this, do a 'left hand-left leg- right hand' movement while going to the left. Do the same to the right.
