I have a horse that is cross firing much worse to the left than the right. My guy has been having problems with arthritis, but a vet recently looked at him and he is in the clear. He is on a daily supplement and he is fine with that... knowing it is NOT pain related.
He loves to cross fire to the left, and when I make him go faster to get him out of it, he will just keep going and will not switch it. If I ask him to slow down he will transcanter (flicking legs back and forth) What should I do to get him to STOP doing this? I have tried poles in a round pen and pulling on the lounge line to get him to get into a smaller circle but with the poles he will go RIGHT over them even when he is on the left lead in the front and right in the back! *
His arthritis is mainly in the right hind--so why is he doing this??*
For those that know, he is a TWH and he has been getting alot better on his canter but I can't seem to fix this.
