My horse hadn't been in shows till I got him and I took him to 5 this summer and fall. He got better each time about being in a new place, and he got better overall about doing well in the arena and actually showing. However, he still does not canter well at a show. I can warm him up in the arena cantering and he's perfectly fine; but when he's in there with a bunch of others cantering he freaks out and tries to go really fast and race everybody. I don't know if he's scared or just really hyped up. What can I do to get him to be calmer while cantering? He normally has a great canter but completely loses it once we're in the class.
