throws me off at the canter
The horse I leased over the summer, Chance, bucks whenever he canters with another horse in the ring. What can I do? Most of the time I come off because he either stops and bucks or swerves to join the other horse in the ring.
He is a 16.2 hh Thoroughbred gelding. Was trained to race but never did since he was to slow and to stocky. He was in a Kimberwick when I first started riding, but I switched him to an eggbutt snaffle. He bucks in the Kimber, but not as often.
He was a rescue(thats what the farm I work at/ board sonya does. They rescue TB's), and was bought by a girl who took lessons on him. He was perfectly trained untils he bought him. She would let him roll with her, and would canter and jump him for 45 mins straight without a warmup or cooldown.
He also wont trailer, but I am working on that, so far we have made it to one show, but it took almost an hour to get in the trailer for the ride home.
Any advice would be greatly appreicated. Ask any question if that would help you think of how to fix him.
