So my OTTB is a big lug sometimes but I of course love him. He canters great a little to far in from the rail sometimes but we are working on that, I think that it is due to his LARGE fear of deer. Even though they can walk under him.
What the real problem is no matter what I do or how many signals I give him he just wont ever do a flying lead change. We circle and loop around the ring for what seems like forever and he just wont do it. He will slow down change leads and continue on, but never on the fly. We have been training for shows and I do not want this to become a problem in the ring.
