A recurring problem I have is while riding my horse will swerve towards the arena gate. I've tried everything from bending his head to the side while riding past the gate, to using tons of leg pressure, making him change gaits as we go past, to turning him in circles. But without a fail, every time we go past a gate, whether it be in a field or arena, he will swerve towards it and try to leave the area.
He is sound, and has no problems when we're out on a trail. It's frustrating because it's caused us to be disqualified from an event at a gaming show.
Does anyone have any ideas? I'm pretty much up to my eyebrows in frustration.
