The problem is she isnt mine I was just training her for fun. And the owner didnt care much about her old injury. I think I may have to stop her training :( and just ride her for trails and fun. Thank again evryone!
Well if she can pick up the left lead fine without a rider, then I don’t think it’s fair to say that she’s the one with the bad habit :P You don’t want to bend her to the outside because then you’re asking her to give you the wrong lead. Horses initiate canter on the leg that they’re bending towards (…if that makes sense?). If you’re doing a circle to the left, you want your horse’s poll to bend towards the inside of the circle. Shift your weight to the left (inside) side of the saddle and apply pressure with the inside leg on the girth so you’re encouraging the horse to bend around that leg. Also, put your outside leg behind the girth so the horse is encouraged to step off from that hind leg. Try doing it in a nice big 20m circle to begin with. Also, keep her nice and supple by doing exercises that encourage bend and flexion on both reins. I hope things work out! :)
