I personally think he doesn't like the cone in the first and second video, because he did do a little better out in between the barrels (the third video) and he always wants to go over in front of the gate. He has a chiro and a farrier appointment today, so now work, but I'll take another video tomorrow.
Then he clearly needs to be taught how to lunge, not just be chased in a circle.
There is nothing wrong with this horse other then TBs are taught to extend and reach and run straight, and he is being pulled around in a 10m circle and THAT can tighten muscles and CAUSE back and body pain.
Teach him to lunge. For real. THEN work on the canter.
