Dominance on one side
I need some help with an issue I have been having...my colt is naturally a lot better and looser going clockwise on the right lead, especially at the lope. He is right side dominant. However it was never really a major issue. A week and a half a go, I had a pretty bad fall while we were loping on his left lead-his bad way. The fall was completely my fault...but ever since that fall, he has been horrible cantering on his left lead. I have trouble getting him turn smoothly like he did before, especially around at the spot where I fell at. It's like he has all of a sudden got really hard on that side. I have done a lot of exercises to soften and supple him, and he remains soft at the walk and trot, it's really just at the lope. I have thought that maybe I'm tensing up without realizing it, but I have been paying attention to myself and haven't been...I'm not a timid rider. Did falling make him loose his confidence? Does he maybe need a chiropractor? I'm not sure...just wanted input. Thank you!
