Left lead at canter - query for Sue C.
Henry is getter better by the day. We managed a panic-free lunging session this am, with sloow walk, trot, canter and neat transitions. What a joy.
And a request for left lead canter when ridden no longer gets a total flip-out response. We are getting there slowly. This week saw the first 'try' to lead off correctly (my trainer was watching closely). But any ideas, Sue, why he can do left lead on the lunge no problem, and tangles up with a rider on board?
I try to put into practioce all I learnt in Devon, which seems to be helping. He no longer leans on the bit and we are developing some topline. He has had major teeth work (ramps causing total block in jaw), decent saddle fitted and rechecked last week, two sessions of general IR light therapy, feet now better balanced etc etc so all the obvious things are sorted. Was fully bone scanned last year and no trouble noted there.
