So Im a mostly western person in the process of switching to mostly hunt seat. What is a good hunt seat canter pace or cadence? I've been working on getting April to not rush it too much (seems to get quick underneath herself so many half halts, stops, rollbacks, etc...) but this weekend my mom watched me ride and told me it is looking (or forming to be) too western pleasure (minus the really short stride).
I pretty much grew up on a 14.2 hand western horse with a short stride and now April is a 16.1 long strided horse and it just feels fast. Any advice?
