I just got a new Irish Draught and he hasn't really been doing much his entire life :P
I am an equitation rider and I have a very good trainer, but...
Goliath likes his left lead and sometimes if I am on the straight away I wont get the right lead. My trainer tells me to push his butt off the rail, and counter bend him and use outside leg and most of the time that works but as some of you may know in a flat class you don't always have that much time and it doesn't help that he likes the ingate.
Sometimes when i'm riding he will pick up the left lead when tracking to the right and I'm afraid i'm going to train him. I can't just circle him off the rail for the right lead. Does anyone have any suggestions? Thanks!
