  7. Suggestions for a horse that drops shoulder in canter?

    We have some horses chewing on a fence and I used to just use Creosote to paint the wood and the horses would leave it alone. Now, I can't seem to find any and I'm wondering if anyone has a...

    This is a used saddle and may have been custom because the seller cannot find a serial number. I guess I will pass, as I can't be sure it is a hoop tree.

    Thanks, everyone.

    Canter transitions.

    When I ask my horse to canter from a trot he seems to have trouble taking the canter without speeding up first and yet, when you ask from the walk, he can take the canter with little fuss.

    Leaning at the canter....

    Now that we are indoors and the arena is smaller, 20x60, I feel like I am being pushed to the outside when cantering to the right on a 20m circle. It doesn't happen cantering left.
