I have a four year old green broke standardbred gelding. He is having trouble making turns at one end of the arena. This is the end of the arena that is near the barn, which I think is part of the reason he does not like making the turns. If I use that winning combination of outside leg, support with the inside leg and the inside rain I can get him to make the turn. Without those aids he runs at an angle and the has engine failure when approaching the woods. When he goes around the turn his head is often with nose pointed to the extreme inside and his ears pointed towards the end on a slant. I am looking for that nice soft straight head that is following the curve of the turn. I am wondering if I am asking and supporting him the right way? With time and practice will he relax into the turn? Right now, I am assuming this is a combination of mild barn sourness/wanting to go home and not being used to turns without a sulky. Does this seem like a likely situation? Do we keep doing what we are doing or change something?
