She's Picking up the wrong lead!

Tanoka, my mare, is starting to pick up the wrong leads. I tried the turning her towards the fence so the inside leg would be the one to stretch out more, but she does an unwanted flying lead changes.
Help?!

Not a method I would recommend to get the horse balanced enough to GET a correct lead.

If this is something new check her back legs for pain or problems.

Your aiming her toward the fence,but are you scooting your fence side leg back just a little and squeezing her with it as a cue

When you're bending in the corner: outside leg, outside rein, ask for the canter.

Works as a very very beginner aid.

For advanced more balanced and straight canter no, as there will be problems if you continue with this aid and wish to do advanced movements.

Wouldn't outside rein bend the horse to the outside, counteracting the bend needed for a correct lead?

If you just bend his nose,use your outside leg partially back,it will make his inside shoulder step out first

Why don't you just cut to the chase and explain the proper aids that you elude to?

Donkey, are you positive she's not in pain? Does she pick wrong lead in just one direction (meaning she's stiff in that direction) or in both?

Establish a circle with the good forward trot and a bend (to the inside) and ask for canter: outside leg is slightly behind the girth, inside leg is asking.
