Jackie will only give me a nice lope to the left, on the rail. If we go to the right, she just throws a fit. If I try going down the middle, she gallops... Lead problem? She also will only lunge to the right. I'm having a trainer come out to help with some other glitches we are having, but wanted to know what you guys thought. We had her tack checked and its fine, an a vet was also just out.

It also may be a result of poor conformation. With my horse, you can cue him just right and prepare him, but his proportions are so off that it is hard for him to pick up his right lead canter.

If it's not the tack or anything medical/conformational, I suggest working him more in that particular direction. Ask for the lead and then bring him back down, cue him up again, and bring him back down. Praise for the correct lead.

EDIT: It may require a chiropractor(sp?) to come out, maybe something hurts him when be tries to canter.

Thanks. Chiropractor is a good idea.

Try only working her the direction that she has trouble with for a while. If she doesn't start to get better then assume its a pain issue and start checking things (back, tack fit, hocks, stifles, etc.).
