Leaning on the round pen? Never seen this before.
I was riding one of our horses today on the trails near my house and she bucked and crow hopped quite a bit throughout the ride. So, I took her into the round pen and just loped her around until she was done. I know a lot of people don't like this "method" but, she needs some kind of discipline. Her ground work and foundation is rock solid, she just tries to get away with bad behavior.
Anyway, after a few rounds I would turn her in toward the round pen trying to get a spin from her. Oddly enough, she would spin to the right perfectly but when I tried to spin to the left... She would lean all of her body weight on the side of the round pen and just...stay there. Literally crushing my leg. It was odd, to say the least.
Saddle/bit/bridle/blanket fit is fine.
She's been checked by a vet and chiro regularly.
Not really sure what her deal is.
I didn't wear her out at all. She is very athletic and our ride was pretty short and easy today.
