Thanks, I appreciate your advice.
And your right, I'm not exactly the most dominant rider. And with my recent confidence issues its been worse. However, I'm not afraid of this horse and I will
get after him if he messes with me.
Also, I think you misunderstood me. He isn't breaking gait without my permission. (If he did that I'd really
be worried about my riding skills) It's that I can walk through that corner with no problem, but if I trot/lope there he driffts sideways into the tree with me pulling his head the other way, putting my weight to turn, and nudging with my outside leg. Guess I'll just have to get after him and make sure he's going, then.
