Before riding your horse for the first time (or the first time after going back to the beginning), you would like to know what they are like cantering under saddle.
– Ensure you can get a good energetic trot easily before doing this.
– Not having your horse respond well to energy before starting to attempt this.
– Pushing too much energy toward them.
– Not having the leading/drawing with energy working first before attempting this.
Work on this exercise until you can easily get a canter online both ways (remember you will work on the left side first and get it good before trying and mastering the right) with not having to urge them to and without any type of resistance (head tossing, bucking, ear pinning, etc.)
