Moving Forward Please Help
So i posted that I just bought two new mares. I got up on them, and they did fabulous walk and trot, but both of them did not enjoy the idea of maintaining a canter. They both go about 10 strides and then go back into the trot. With some persistance I got them to take two laps around the arena, but I was wondering if there was a better way to handle this or a reason as to why they're doing this, The saddles arent the problem as they both fit fine, I'm riding them in a loose snaffle (They were being ridden in curb bits when I got them).
