Leg, leg, leg. YOU have to be straight before he can be straight. I thought I was completly straight in the saddle until my trainer pointed out all my flaws to me, and instantly, my horse came up and under me, and was perfectly straight. Have your trainer or someone watch you and tell you how croked you are in the saddle. Even if you are leaning the tiniest bit, it will change the horse's whole center of balance. Heck, these things feel a fly on their skin, they sure as heck feel our body moving weird!
