Another issue I seem to be having with my gelding...
Whenever we're riding in the arena, he fights me the whole way going away from the gate, but wants to go full speed going down the rail towards it. I've tried mounting and dismounting on the other side, but he still knows where we exit. It's difficult just moving faster than a walk when we're headed away from the gate because he just jumps into the middle of the arena, especially at the canter, makes me nervous because even if I use my inside leg, outside rein, he still jumps into the middle, I've tried circling him and all.
Any tips would be fantastic.
