    So, just to clarify, you ARE actually getting the canter though, correct? Sorry, it's still not clear to me.

    Asking for the canter and not getting it is one thing, but getting it and having an adrenaline powered brain-drain during it is another. ;)

    Is a slower horse until you build skill and confidence a possibility? If you're reaching speeds where you go from learning to fear, perhaps riding a slower mover for a period of time will let you gain the experience you need to get over the "fear/excitement" hump.

    I second trying on a slower horse. I didn't know my horse was slow until I recently switch to a younger horse and I was like whoa....

    Somewhat of a separate note, but I just started cantering recently and it's the first time I've actually felt like I was a "rider". After trotting, cantering is exhilarating and I really feel a bit more relaxed because the extra speed doesn't have me over-thinking so much. I ask for it, prepare myself and enjoy !

    Quite the cool !
