I have a gelding that likes to side step. When I try to turn him (direct rein) he takes about 3 steps to the side with his head turned the way I want him to go. If I squeeze him, he will straighten up and just walk on, but he does it nearly every time I try to turn him.
He isn't trying to be mean, just stubborn. He was rode by kids for the last few years so I chalk a little of it up to that (getting away with that he was doing, ya know.)
So, is there anything that I can do to make him stop that? I have had a few horses do that before, and I was never able to fix it. Any clues?
