My horse isnt comfortable on one rein.

I have a 15.2hh (158cm) 11year old Thoroughbred and she doesnt feel comfortable on her right rein, shes just not happy at all. Could it be her saddle?

It could be her saddle, it could be her teeth, she might need a visit from the chiro, it could be the bit, it could be the rider.......

It could be a lot of things but saddle is a good place to start.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

What do you mean "not comfortable"? I had an OTTB once, and spent time looking at how they are trained. They are basically worked only to the left, to can take a while to get balanced to the right. Perhaps that is what you are feeling?
