Whenever I land from a fence my mare would want to change leads from right to left unless I turn right directly! If I want to remain straight she will do whatever it takes to change. What should I do?

Jump a fence, when she lands in the wrong canter lead, go back to trot and ask for the canter transition. If she goes to let canter, go back and do the same thing but flex her right. Hope his helps!
I would check for pain, especially and issue in the left hind if this is the case, left hind being the one to power the right lead in canter I would suggest there's an issue in this area.
