And I haven't found it all that difficult to ask a horse with auto changes to delay a change or counter canter, it's merely a matter of maintaining the previous bend and preventing the change. Very common when a horse competes both in hunters and hunter seat equitation; the flat tests in the Big Eq classes include are changes on a straight line and a simple change for exactly that reason.
I should have specified. I meant in dressage. For example, in the 2nd level test you have to do a three loop serpentine without changing leads.

I suppose that if you trained them correctly it could be helpful. But I personally don't like it when a horse does something when I don't ask it. In my mind I see it the same thing as if I was walking and the horse would leg yield every time I went on the quarter line.

I find that if the horse has been taught counter canter correctly then you are unlikely to get the change without asking, or at least after the initial schooling.
