Can you ride in the ditch? I know you have to cross the approach but let him go slower over the gravel bits? Sorry if that's a stupid question, that works in rural Alberta but I haven't spent much time in rural Ontario.

As for the walking off/being cinchy I also think he's testing you. After you cinch do you pull his front feet forward to make sure his wrinkles in his armpits aren't getting pinched? (Sorry I know that's not the technical term but I believe it helps Pepper, though I think I could beat Pepper with a 2X4 and she'd pretend it didn't hurt).
