Horse doesn't like to canter?

I have had my horse for 4 years now and she always swishes her hair at the canter ever since I got her. Sometimes she puts her ears back when I try to get her to collect she puts her ears back. But when I don't her ears don't seem to do anything but be calm. I asked if she didnt like to canter with a question mark because I couldn't think of anyway to put it. There are no physical problems and I don't jab at her mouth or kick her. When we run barrels or anything she still swishes but seems to enjoy it.. Any suggestions?

I have an Arab who swishes her tail with most leg aids in an arena but seldom on a trail. She is an ear pinner if anyone even looks at her but she is really nice. She is 24 & has always been like this- I named her Icky (she thinks it means -Most Wonderful). I think it is just her nature to look grumpy because she is a very willing horse.
Maybe your horse is the same?

I guess. I mean, its been 4 years. She's fine in the show arena and when I don't hold her back she isnt as bad. Maybe she's a free runner? Lol

Maybe there is a medical problem? We where told nothing was wrong with my horse, but he did have a problem ,always good to get a second opinion.

If you can't find anything don't worry about it lol! Are you sure her ears are pinned or back? Back is listening pin is p*ssed

Have you actually had her checked to see if anything is wrong or you are saying this because to you she looks fine minus her grumpy-ness?
