I recently decided to teach my horse coun ter canter just for something to do she seemed fairly balanced and is evenly developed though she does favour her right rein. I have successfully taught this horse to leg yield and turn on the forehand and haunches we are getting rein back also.
However she counter canters fine on the straight and on uphill corners but once I go to the downside she falls on to the forehand and breaks into a trot.
Is this a riding issue on my behalf or is she not balanced enough to carry ouit this exercise she isnt a young horse she is 11 but only really riding from the age of six. She is vary athletically built also
