Horse Won't Canter In Opposite Direction?
I'm just getting my horse to canter, he's pretty fresh and thought it unnecessary, so for a while I just went back to mastering the walk and trot. But during the summer holidays I have been working with him a lot and I've gotten him to canter nicely, but whenever the opposite direction is even implied, he throws a fit, and sometimes even me. He can be pretty lazy, not in the regard that he is fat and slow, well, the fat part might be true, but he is quite forward, he just doesn't like to work very hard and will finds ways of evasion. Is he just being stubborn and saying no, what should I do about it?
