My horse is typically really good with keeping collected and listening. Although, when I ask for a canter, she's good for about 2-3 strides then attempts to take off at a full out gallop. When she does that, I normally one-rein stop her, and circle her until she walks slowly again and repeat.
When I ask for the canter, I normally have worked her for a good 30 minutes until she's in a sweat, so that way I know she's listening to what I ask. It's just when the canter is asked, she reacts by trying to go too fast. Are there other ways that I can get her to collect, and stay slow? I only managed to get her collected once and that was by circling her and all that jazz. Is doing what I am doing correct? Or am I doing something wrong and and fix it up? Tips for getting her to stay slow and collected at the canter would be great.
