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.

RIDE your horse FORWARDS and keep him STRAIGHT
