cowchick hit the nail on the head. Don't change just counter canter through the middle. I would ever change leads in the middle agian until I was showing. Even showing you need to school in a few classes and do the same thing... Don't change in the middle.

Stops. If her head comes up just pick up and knock/push her head down walk forward pushing her up in the bridle. Keep doing this, it will get her soft in the mouth and keep her head level/down. Basically you are teach here that little contact in the mouth, my head goes down and etc....

f&b and cowchick,you are both right.the mare is so used to the pattern that she knows where to change.now you have to teach her to rely on you as to when she can change.your other problem,right before i show a clients horse,i take him for slides,make sure he breaks at the poll,hold my hands apart down beside the swells steady,and squeeze him with my calves until he comes to a complete stop,then i take off my leg pressure so he can back.

Sometimes bringing the horse down to a walk then striking off on a new lead helps.
