I had an old horse who physically could not canter on his left lead.
Also, at 20 you really have to think about drastically reducing the workload of the horse. Many horses at this age should be restricted to mainly walking under saddle and all round penning and lunging should be ceased in order to maintain soundness and good joint health for a longer period of time.
If you continue to ride her hard well into her 20s, she will probably not stay even pasture sound and will have to be put down much before her "time".
And also I think someone mentiond above that it will be harder to teach cause she is 20, I could have miss read, but age doesnt matter, even if she was 30 you cans till teach her new tricks! Lol!!! Unless there is a physical reason of course!
As for fixing the problem, I wouldnt really know. But the ground poles sound like it definitely worth a try! Id give that a go! Good luck!!
