Agreed with sierra. We could all get a better idea with a video to help. Look on youtube too. Charmayne James, Sherry Cervi, Dena Kirkpatrick and Martha Josey have several training videos on there that will give you an idea.

Pssh.I didn't pick up the wrong lead
It's called a counter canter...
...A very advanced maneuver.

No need for BOLD CAPS.
Lets not be quick to judge, the OP told me she would try to get a video up.

I'm not being snarky or rude in my BOLD CAPS..I'm just trying to get my point across that it is very important for her horse to be able to do those things correctly before moving on to trotting and asking for more speed.

I also commented and said that I would try to help her and we could be better help actually seeing what is happening and how we would best handle her situation..It's hard to give advice over the internet, not knowing exactly what is happening.

Another question for you guys, my gelding keeps disuniting going around the barrel and it slows his turns down. How do I fix that? I'm not sure that slow work can help a problem that he's having only when he canters or gallops. I'm not saying it can't, I'm just saying that in my mind, I'm having trouble thinking of how slow work could help.

Drum: exactly why we should not assume she is doing anything wrong until we see for ourselves.

Ally56: he is doing what?

Something is obviously wrong between her and her horse or she wouldn't be asking for advice. Just trying to help.

With Drum on this one.

And Ally, you keep saying "Slowing in the turn" like its a bad thing....It's not. The horse should naturally slow down going into the turn. Hence why we have "rate".

but we do not know that yet...she could be doing everything right and there being something wrong with the horse or she could be doing something wrong and nothing be wrong with the horse....I will offer my advise and opinions after I SEE what is going on.

Exactly, being slow in your turns isn't really a bad thing, if anything it will keep you from blowing your turns.

Either way, something is going on with one or both of them..How you don't see that I don't know..If something wasn't a problem or something wrong there wouldn't be a problem to have to fix.
