If the vet says that there is NO way there is a problem ...
Then it is behavioral. And it is possible - I've run into the event.
I once rode a Mule (very smart little boogers...) named Willie. His owner/trainer told me this story-
When she first got Willie, he had this habit. Any time she would ask him to canter, and at any given time, he would pee. So, she obviously went to the vet. Nothing. Blood, Urinary, Scope, everything came clean. So it was obvious Willie was just getting out of work. Her solution?
Don't let it happen! Don't even let him stop. Kick, kick, kick when he tries to slow down. If he does manage to halt, and especially if he parks out, a good pop with the crop on his butt is in call. If he bolts at a canter - good boy! You asked for forward, that's what you got. DO NOT scold him for bolting. Let him canter for a few seconds, then bring him back. Now, of course if he bucks or something dangerous, act accordingly. I'm just talking him going a little quick.
Fixed the problem :) Willie was pee free! :p
