Hacking is a serious problem, on the road he's fine but all of us go onto the bridle paths, into the woods etc. So wen we go a little faster into a nice steady canter, he just throw his head on the floor leans on the bit and gallops off basically. I have got used to it now so it isnt like ruining anything.
We are on schooling week this week and from 3 days we can now canter without any rein pressure at all..big improvment.
If he dislikes transitions so much, keep doing them until he's good. Make sure you end on a good note, though. If he bucks once, keep going until he wont buck anymore, then stop. Transitions are crucial for a horse that won't listen to aids.
