    Question a skippy left lead

    Me and my horse just recently went on a trail ride and a romp around the yard and I noticed that he ran away from the roundpen fine but when we ran to it, he would shy and dodge the path. Then we did some roundpen work and I got him into a canter. I've never been able to get him into a canter before in the roundpen but htis time I had spurs on. So we go around and he gets up into his canter going to the right, clockwise, but we go the other direction and I've already assumed he was messed up on his leads so going clockwise, I force him into his left lead and he just wont canter, and on the trail I noticed when I forced him into his left lead he would just do a nasty western pleasure limp, and it didnt even feel western pleasure like it just felt like he was limping on his lead. I don't ride much, and as he is the only one that I have really cantered on.i did on another horse but not as much him. I don't have much experience in the canter I just want know if you guys might know what is going on. He recently had a small injury to his right hoof and it doesnt seem tender but it looks real bad. Should I keep forcing him until he does it or is there another solution? Is he lazy or what? I just don't know. And im sorry for making this thread sound like a yahoo answers thing, lol

    He might be lame, maybe you should try lungeing him and watch him.
