My horse has an issue with giving a nice budum...budum... canter that is desired in the hunter show ring. He usually rushes his canter (sort of like a hand gallop). I have tried half halts, transitions, etc.; however, none of this really seems to work...it works him up more than anything. He also seems very sensitive with any bit contact at all (this might be due to his history as an x-barrel racer...runs more with bit contact). How can I fix this? Any tips are greatly appreciated! Thanks!
