If he has no problems and if the trainer had no problems, it is most likely your balance being off. Even if you don't have problems with other horses, it could be because they are stronger and more schooled. If your hip is tweaked or rotated in any direction, or if you are sitting more on one side than the other, it could be enough to cue your horse to pick up the left lead instead of the right, even when you are tracking right.
Well you see like I said to the other poster, he did good with her early that day, but got on him when she noticed he wasn't picking up the right lead and he still didn't cooperate even with her. He started bucking and just fast trotting around because she kept pulling his head more to the right and trying to lope him off and he just wasn't having it. He hasn't figured out his leads yet which could be why. I try my best with my balance and it is good for the MOST part. I know I need to work on it more BUT even the trainer was saying he just hasn't figured out his leads. I will try to round pen him tomorrow and see if he is picking up the right lead. Like I said he is fine with his left lead, it's just his right
