Hi, looking for some advice on how to correct falling out through the shoulder on a young horse? Horse is a dream to ride apart from on the left rein, falls out through the shoulder, and on circles its an effort just to get round! Tried just using my bodyweight and leg aids, but you have to hold on to the left rein and even without much pressure, the head is turned right around to the left. In walk and trot it's hardly noticeable but in canter we just drift outwards ! Right rein is perfectly balanced rocking horse canter. Any advice welcome. Improvements are being made, but I don't want to end up reinforcing the wrong muscles by continuing to canter on a strange angle. I can feel the saddle leaning out to the right so sitting to it is quite difficult. I Ride a few horses and although I am right handed and left is not my best rein, I ride the others fine.
