What have you done so far to get your horse started on poles?
What is their strengths and weaknesses?
What kind of times are you running now?

This is a very, very vague question...

What problems, specifically, do you feel you have as a rider that make you want to improve?

Pssh.I didn't pick up the wrong lead
It's called a counter canter...
...A very advanced maneuver.

Seeing a video of you run would be best here. That way we can see your style of riding and see what you need to work on.

Sorry, I would like to be able to ride with him rather than against him and help him to not stall on the end poles

Again. We cannot help without seeing what is going wrong. Get a video and post it.

We need to see a video.

We can't possibly pull guesses out of thin air about what may be going wrong.

It is not enough to know how to ride; one must know how to fall.

My biggest advice would be to keep your knees, feet and arms IN!
I've seen many new riders get hurt/knock poles because they had limbs sticking out that hit.
