My 18 hand Mare has the SAME issue as your boy, just counter clock wise. She (my mare) needs eggbar shoes... its not always rider error. Its in-balance , some times they need help cosmetically or what have you. He could have a sore spot on the side he has the issues with. His poll may need to be adjusted by a chiro. Theres a few options that can be taken. Firstly I would , if you have not already, lunge him the way he has a problem , if he does not have a problem on the lunge with the correct lead, its rider error, if he has the same issue then its a balance issue. Is he rushy at all going the bad direction? Ginger would get rushy and she'd be very stiff going counter-clock wise. She has un-even heels though, hence the corrective shoeing. If the shoes don't work then he needs / may need to see the chrio. My best friends mare had same issue, chrio came, adjusted her poll , and viola, no problems. Let me know how you make out its interesting to hear im not the only one with this issue lol.
