lunge help - running out on the canter
My guy is perfect in the round pen - free lunging and with the lunge line. Walk trot canter, he can do it all with just a "cluck" noise. (He's only 3 by the way). He's doing so well, I decided to take him out of the pen and just use the lunge line.
Walk is ok, trot is great, but when I ask him to canter he takes off and will not follow the circle. Im doing everything ok, I think, and I dont think he's just hyped up. I dont think he's running from the whip cuz he does this even when I dont use one.
What do you think? Any suggestions? Im pretty sure he knows whats going on and expected from him cuz like I said, hes perfect in the pen.
