My horse is OBSESSED with making right turns. When we do left turns in the arena, he does them just fine but I can always feel him wanting to flip directions. Whats up with that? He does lateral flexion both ways, as well as turn both ways equally if we are doing figure eights or going between poles, (at least I think he does.) It is hard to tell sometimes since he isn't exactly soft but I THINK he does. I do left turns a lot to practice but when he does do them in the arena it feels awkward... and he always wants to spin around and change direction.
Do you think its a training or physical problem, or maybe even a mental one? Whichever the case, how can I cure him and show him that making left turns isn't so bad or wrong? I thought horses liked going left???
