I find that he tends to trip, mainly at the canter, but also at the trot when I let him go on a long rein. If I frame him up and encourage him to use himself, it gets better, but doesn't completely go away.
The weird part is though, when I put him on a lunge line and let him trot and canter, he doesn't trip... like at all.
Does anyone know why he trips under saddle, but not on his own? (when I lunge him, I do both with a saddle and bridle and also just a lunge line. He doesn't trip when I free lunge him either)
Is there anything I can do to help him other than helping him come under himself? If I let him go on a longer rein, he tends to panic, trip and break, almost like he's afraid you are going to leave him. I push him through the break but some younger girls allow him to stop.
