Canter to Trot Transitions
I have been working on transitions with my horse for quite a while. It's rather difficult for him to make downward transitions, but the Canter - Trot transitions are the worst. When I first got him, he did the ' fall forward ' transition, which we have worked through, but to compensate he has moved on to bringing both hind legs under neath him, planting both at the same time, and sort of ' bouncing' off into the trot. If that makes sense.
Now, my question is, what exactly should your horse do when you ask for the canter-trot transition? How do you achieve this? How do I encourage my horse to make the transition correctly?
