Is this your first horse?
I remember when I took my first horse to a lesson. I'd been riding school horses for two years and I went trotting around the arena and pretty much ended with my horse almost running straight into the fence, he stopped but I sure didn't ask for that. I'd been riding school horses the whole time and they all knew to follow the arena track, I didn't know with other horses that I might have to actually ride the corner.
Horses naturally meander, you have to ride them straight or around corners, it doesn't just happen
