Smile Gelding Help Canter

My gelding Troy will not keep well rounded and soft when I ask for the canter. He is on the bit for the rest of the lesson, but when we try for a canter, he stiffens and throws his head up. Please Help

Assuming this is the same horse in your other thread, have the trainer you are having come out check him over on this. I believe you have some respect issues that need resolving. When you get his respect and giving to the bit, this will go away.

outline comes from the rear end. You need to ignore what the head is doing. Ride between your leg and seat. ride him deep into corners and only once you have the back end sorted should you worry about the front.

Dropping thier head does not a correct outline make.
Chiilaa and apachewhitesox like this.

RIDE your horse FORWARDS and keep him STRAIGHT
