So first of all I cantered Tungsten for the first time outside today, hoorah! This was probably the 5th or 6th time we have worked on cantering. I normally do about once a week for 10 minutes. He is four and only has about 3 months riding in him and about a month last September with his old owners. Anyway, he was fantastic. The canter itself right now is very ugly and unbalanced, but that is to be expected. Anyway when tracking left we have difficulty picking up the correct lead.
The twist here is Tungsten has string halt. It has gotten much better in the 4 months I have had him just by correct training and developing his hind end. Now he only seems to have issues with his right hind, but his hindquarters are not nearly as strong as they would be were he to be "normal" making pretty much everything more difficult.
Any words of advise to help us with that lead? Thanks!
