    somthing about the arena!

    OK, so my gelding has recently decided that our arena is the root of all things evil. If I'm riding him he wont even go near the gate or even the arena for that matter without bucking, and as I'm just as stubborn as he is this has ended with me choking down a mouthful of dirt more than once. However this only happens when he isn't being lead into the arena, if someone has a hold of his bridle he is 100% fine. He doesn't have a fear of gates either. My trainer think it's just that he doesn't want to exercise, but when I lead him in to the same arena to lunge him he's a perfect angel. What the heck!!
    How the heck do I fix this??

    Beyond the usual, pain due to saddle/tack....

    How much riding are you doing in and out of the arena and what the difference is in work level in the arena as compared to outside if any.

    Immediate thought is arena sourness but if you give more details it would be easier to suggest answers.

    I would work him HARD anywhere BUT the gate and that is the only place he gets to catch his breath.

    He did have some back problems years ago but, I feel like that wouldn't be particular to just the one arena If that was the case. I ride him about three times a week, because we're getting ready for a show. But no the amount and difficulty level we are doing is the same no matter where I ride him. OK so info time lol he was a saddle seat horse for a while until I started riding him western. And I guess when he was saddle seat they worked him really hard in the outdoor arenas only cause our indoor arena is sort of small. How would you go about fixing arena sourness?

    If I am reading this correctly, he doesn't want to go IN the outdoor arena and is the only arena you are having issues with?
    If you take him elsewhere you have no problems getting him in the arena OR problems while you are working in it?
