He was sold to us as a green 4 y/o [he is now 5] 6 months ago who was getting well established in walk and trot, but had done very very little canter work.
He bucks a lot going into canter, but has improved a lot. [We've had all the obvious checked out, he's not in pain.] and i've cantered him loads on hacks. I would really like to start working on his canter as he's competent at walk and trot.
He can pick up his right canter lead a majority of the time, but I cannot get him to pick up his left [which is strange, as he is a lot more supple on his left rein in w/t]. I would LOVE some advice and good excersises on how to teach him to canter nicely, and on the correct leg. He is not particulary balanced at cantering in the arena. He's starting to understand the cues much better now, thanks to all the cantering on hacks, which is useful. I just want a bit of guidence on how to help him along, properly.
