Yes but it comes up in both movements only every now and then...

Now I rode her today in the arena. And tried a few methods, like mixing the routine up a little (as can he star suggested) and what kayty suggested. She actually improved in the little time we were practicing :) I also have heard that travers is easier for them in the canter so I gave it a to. And she gave me a perfect and very soft travers with a left bend. She was a little stiff in the right side today ( sorry guys, I meant to say right not left in my first post) but a lot of flexing and a long warmup fixed that.

Thankyou for all your help guys :) She has come along well in just one ride. Im going to take it slow with her and hopefully we will see some big improvements!

That is because of outside leg aids easily creates a crooked horse....especially at a canter.

Sorry mate, not sure if you entirely understood Spyder's post.
In canter, it is very easy to lose straightness by just putting an outside leg back, hence you notice in flying changes, often the quarters will swing side to side. So though it may feel easier, as though you have got the quarters in travers, really the horse is probably just crooked with the quarters to the inside.

I understood. But she did do travers. I'm not saying she did it perfectly but perfect for her level. I do understand. I have trouble saying what I mean in writing :S I'm really sorry...

I dont know whats going on with my iPod, it posted before I finished writing. What I meant to say was that after a little work she did a nice traver in canter.

Nope, I can't even post photos. Look , I'm not arguing here. And I have no doubt you are all better riders than me. And I thank you for all your help. And she probably just went crooked in the traver at canter a few times I'm not denying that. But she did do a nice traver in canter once, I know what it feels like to have a proper traver executed (I have done it on an old dressage schoolmaster). But we still do need help. And I'm trying my hardest.

No ones having a go mate - just speaking from experience, I'm sure we've all done it - I know I have, more times than I can count. And that's why having eyes on the ground is just so valuable to our riding. Something that we really lack here in Australia as we tend to ride on our own all the time.

Take advice as just that, helpful advice, and not critisism. As a dressage rider, you need to develop quite a thick skin and not take anything personally. DuffyDuck here on the forum has similar stories to me in this aspect - I've been shouted out so much that people have come outside to see what's going on, I've been chased around the arena with a lunge whip on a recently ottb because I wasn't riding forward enough, I've been told that my legs are too short to ever look good on a horse and I should take up cycling because I'm so stocky....
Yep, definitely need a thick skin in this sport!

For sure! I am taking it all in. I need the help, there's no point in denying that!
