6th lesson in seems a little hasty for cantering to me, but I'm glad to hear that your instructor starts you on the lunge for new gaits, and if that was your first time trotting, I'd say you're doing quite well! Just remember to relax your body, sit up straight, and let the horse move you. Don't work against him, or it will be that much harder!
You have quite the lazy lesson horse though xD I was sure he'd fallen asleep while 'trotting' a couple of times, there! Ask him to step it up and move forwards more, and it will be a lot easier for you to stay with him at the trot.
Everyone in your life is meant to
be in your journey, but not all of
them are meant to stay till the end.
