My horse always pulls his head down and bends to the inside when we canter to the left. The other direction he is fine. Do you have any tips?

Make sure both reigns are equal and you have equal leg pressure
Hi Melissa,
There is a difference un between pulling the head down and wanting to strech. If he does it slowly, probably he wants to strech which is benefitial. If he does a quick pull and gets you out of your seat, do a side pull and and leg in order to get him going forward.
