Horse refuses right lead, help!

Ok this is getting very frustrating and I don't know what to do. I have taught my horse everything, I got him last year unbroke. He walks and trots just fine but when I ask him to canter, he only picks p his left lead. Never his right! I've tried getting him in tight tight circles and he will still lake a left lead, I've had 4 other people ride him too and he does it. When I turn him out or when hes playing, 99% of the time he picks up a left lead too. When I lunge him though, he willl pick up a right lead. But then if you put a person on him and lunge him he still goes into a left lead! I need tips :/ I'm getting frustrated. I've also had my saddles fitted, I have tried 2 jumping, 1 dressage, and 2 western, as well as bareback with the same result so it rules that out :(

check out this thread. This is what you need to do and the problem (I suspect) is the same assuming the horse is not lame, the saddle fits and you can ride well:

HELP! He won't pick up the right lead at the canter!
