    I never knew that "type" of canter had a name, hah. It just got to the point where Willie was fit enough that I just needed a half halt and to tighten my core a little more than normal on course to get that out of him especially the last time we showed. He was probably prelim-level fit and just super adjustable and fun to ride.

    Yeah, I never that canter had a name either!
    We pretty much just use the term "rock them back". When approaching certain fences (well, all fences, but there are certain ones we really do this for) we'll sit up/slow our body down, lift the front end and get their hindquarters under them, collect but maintain/increase the impulsion.
    Now I know! Coffin canter!

    Gosh, you guys make it sound so easy. Lol. Nelson is super powerful, with alot of pop and spark as the clinitian said - but I keep wanting to revert back to my Dressage Seat. Which would be alright for a horse that needs it, but not Nelson. So I have to make a concious effor to remain off of his back, while using my core, legs, and upper body to get him to come back under me, rock back while keeping that energy and spark.

    I love that I learnt how you use the coffin canter in water, drops, platforms, coffins and etc, etc, etc.
