getting canter out of a pacing horse
Hi all. i have a pacing horse that just dont wanna canter. i have been practicing with him up the woods on long stretches and can (usually) get him into a canter but only from a really fast pace...needless to say this a way uncomfortable. Im used to the pace now so my body posision stays ok, but he just launches off into a really fact canter/pace where his front legs canter and back legs trot.
He will trot, walk pace and canter on the lunge but i have a similar problem with him when ridden in the school. I have even gotten someone to lunge him whilst im on him and no problems he will canter fine on both reins, so he knows the aids.
His back, saddle, bridle and teeth have been checked and all come up fine...im stumped, any ideas?
