Rearing while spinning to the left!

For the last two weeks Champ has devolped a dangerous new habit-rearing. He only rears when I am trying to turn him on haunches to the left. He is doing a abosloutly wonderful on the otherside and doing everything else. I am not afraid of this habit what so ever I know his tricks and bits. I have not changed anything as far as I know. I got some lessons awhile back. I just need to no how to fix without getting myself hurt(or killed) in the process and yes I have seen that happen. I do realize I need to work with a trainer but for the next week or two I can not get to one so I need help from you guys. So if you have any ideas of how to stop it or what may cause all input is appreciated.

Thank you

Since it is a sudden thing, I wonder if maybe it hurts him to spin that way. Maybe something with a shoulder or in his left hock or hip.

I've seen a couple rear from pain/discomfort in the mouth from the bit, too.

So get a check of his teeth, ensure he has no sharp hooks or points.

Get a chiro to check out his back, check anything that would cause him pain.

All of the above.....Sudden onset points to discomfort......

Yes I believe it is something to do with pain. I just wanted to rule everything else out aswell.
The only thing about pain wouldnt it effect him when askingfor leg yields, changes and sidepasses?

Not necessarily. It may have something to do with how he balances his weight when trying to spin to the left.

Most of our horses do a rear type thing when we have them spin or do rollbacks.
Unless he was perfectly fine and doing them correctly to the left, then had the sudden pop ups during it, I'd say it's just how he's balancing himself (as smrobs said).

I phrased it incorrectly I think that may be a possibility that he's is in pain other wise it maybe a balance problem.
