I have ridden and trained many many horses in my life, but my mare, Amber has me stumped... I am seriously beginning to wonder if something bad happened to her during her training back in March-April. When I have her out in a field, in the woods on the trails or even on the grass outside of the ring she will happily canter no problem!
In the ring she will walk, trot, bend, go over ground poles and cross rails no problem. She travels round and on the bit and totally relaxed. The second I ask her for a canter inside the ring she turns into a totally different horse. She throws her head in the air, cuts immediatly to the inside, bucks and acts generally nervous and uncomfortable.
Im really not sure what to do, so any advice would really be appreciated!!
