Make him pass it..When you are going in for your turn don't let him turn, keep him moving passed the barrel and turn away from the barrel..You have to keep him on his toes, he's anticipating the turn too soon and will likely start to turn into the barrel if not caught at the beginning of the habit and correcting it.
Practice that over and over again at all gaits..walk, trot, and lope passed the barrel..do NOT even let him start in to turn it. Do that a few times and then lope up to it once and let him turn correctly, then go back again and make him go passed the barrel and turn away from it.
