    Bit of reassurance needed please!

    Why don't you call them and ask if you're worried? It might be that it would be better to have him in a v. small fenced off area instead of a stable.

    Advice please... I cannot canter!

    I would definitely agree with trying to relax - I have had this problem myself! The more tense you get the less balanced and forward thinking the horse will be. It sounds like this horse takes advantage of that to run on instead of changing pace. Would also agree with a lunge lesson or perhaps...

    Update on impossible canter lead!
