Sounds like your fault. Until you stop being defensive and fix your riding, your horse won't get better. You said he cantered fine for a green beginner but not you, and then you said you are the only one he allows on him? That's a little contradicting.

Sounds like you are making excuses for him, which is why he has issues with the canter.

I have already been working on the problem

I never said she was a green beginner, the girl who rode him simply was not at my level. She is an advanced rider, but not at my level. He cantered for her about 1 month ago, and that's when the problem first started. Before you try and give me advice, read what I write. This is already resolved, and you obviously did not read the entire question.

I find it funny how everyone on here is so quick to bash someone else's riding that they have never seen, but NOT answer the question.

I understand that most of the time it is the riders fault, but this horse has issues and I have improved my riding as best as I can.

This morning my trainer said he wouldn't allow her on him, he is fully aware that I am his only owner.

He is a horse who needs only one person, he gets very very attatched to one person who is willing to work with him

I am tired of people being so quick to be rude, and not answer the question

it sounds like she is in pain or discomfort. Have you checked the saddle is clean and fitting right? And in my experience, in the heat horses get very moody when asked to go for more then they want to. Riding early in the morning or after around 4 pm may help.
Hope this helps

Thank you! And it's resolved. I just have to keep pushing him. He needs to be motivated and he got used to knowing that bucking got him out of work

I'd like to first say, welcome to the forum. Next I must inform you that you don't get to choose when a thread is finished. You posted a problem scenario and I'm glad that you were able to resolve the issue, although, from your responses, I don't feel like you were as open to suggestions as you maybe could have been.

As for responders, please remember to be courteous, especially when responding to new members. It's not a very welcoming feeling to recieve such direct replies off the bat and sometimes it can really drive the direction of a persons ability to take advice or suggestions in.

I'd like to mention, when there is a problem with a horse, it really is many times the fault of the rider. I also think the suggestion to check the horse for any health issues is good.

Again, welcome to the forum.

I am sorry I am defensive about my riding , i am just constantly criticized at my barn for picking a "worthless horse with no talent" I love him more than anything and I came on here to escape this

I am very close to the girls at my barn, and though they mean well, they hurt my feelings alot when they say I won't show with him, it's be a joke f I did, he's dumpy and has no talent, etc. my riding has been questioned multiple times this week, since he is not pushbutton and I'm insecure as it is. Sorry if I got defensive, I came on here with the hopes of receiving exercises that will help him with transitions and balance, also behavioral advice.

He was checked by a vet the day before I bought him, all my tack is fine on him, and my riding has improved with him, and the only part now is he is being stubborn

He knows I bought and he wants to see how much he can get away with, since I am the only rider on him

Thank you for the kind advice of some, and the direct advice of others

The problem is in work, and I have noticed an improvement from yesterday, and the day before.

Yesterday when I hacked him, he put up a big fight and I finally got him to canter perfectly. Today he out up much less of a fight and cantered nicely.
He is learning that bucking won't scare me and it will not get him out of work
