I would like to see vid footage of this if that is possible. :) It could very well be you. Maybe going in that direction is not your best side, and in effect it is rippling to your horse which is then causing the veer out.
Maybe your pelvis is out, or you need a chiro adjustment. Maybe one leg is longer than the other and you are throwing your horse off balance because you are out - therefore causing the results you are getting.
Maybe your saddle needs to be reflocked on the right side, which could be causing back pain for your horse in that direction.
I would not be putting the blame on your horse right away - I would first be looking at myself as the rider. My tack. Or how I am approaching my horse to the fence, or there lack of.
Remember, our horses jump blindly. They are relying 100% on their rider to keep them supported at the base of that fence - if they don't have that, the good ones wont jump.
A video would be great to determin what is going on.
