The disunited canter AKA cross cantering - questions
Do you think that a horse that has trouble with 'clean' changes while playing free will have trouble learning lead changes under saddle?
I have an 8 yo TB that often cross canters when playing in the field and changes leads. More like almost always. He changes in front but goes around cross cantering. Additionally, he often gets disunited on the longe.
We've started changes under saddle, but I'm wondering if his lack of fluency while free of tack is any indication of his ability to have clean changes under tack.
So can you all tell how you school
your changes? On easy and hard learners? My green mare swaps easily in the field and out on trail rides and in big fields, but tends to just get the front in the ring. Know it's supposed to be back to front, but how?
