    Question My horse always wants to go right?

    I recently got a new horse. His name is Bentley. 12yo Quarter/Paint gelding. I love him so much. But I have noticed that when I'm riding him he always wants to go to the right. What I mean by this is when we are riding down the road he will pull to the right side (like having a flat tire) when we get to a road on the right side he wants to go down that road. Never the left side even if that's the side the driveway is. Yes I make him go where I want him to but he keeps pulling right. I'm not sure how else to describe this. Has anyone else had this happen?

    Sure. Animals are right or left dominant just like people. Things I check before thinking it's a simple training issue are vision, skeletal alignment, muscle imbalance. Rare, rare cases are neurological in origin. Most often it's simple training or habit.
