Hi, so I was wanting to buy a horse at my barn, and I tried her out and she was CRAZY! She jumped invisible fences, she did a full-speed ahead gallop when I was only asking her to trot.
Her owners do not take care of her. They haven't even ridden her in a year. She hasn't seen a farrier in such a long time. She got a huge cut on her front left leg and her owners didn't even care.
Now I'm getting to the point. The trot transition I can fix. It's just the canter that I'm struggling with. Whenever I ask her for the aid to canter, she arcs her hind & back up and goes to a full speed gallop. If it helps, she is a 8 year old throughbred, standing at 16hh.
