    Yeah. It's a sixteen inch with full QH bars and I've had two coaches check it and tell me it fits

    I say he's doing one of two things: he's being a brat and just doesn't want to canter in that area, or he may be trying to tell you that something is off about that part of the pasture.
    How's the footing in that spot- could it be that he's not wanting to canter there for fear of poor ground? I know my mare used to hate being worked in the pasture at one of our showgrounds. She prefers to work in a ring over out in the open any day, but that pasture has really uneven footing and that always freaked her out to no end.
