So when "most" horses canter, it's, e.g., back left, back right and front left, then front right.
Ok, I get that.
I was watching my instructor ride my boy at my last lesson, and he was doing back left, front and back right, front left.
Now I fully understand why he ALWAYS paces when I bring him down from the canter - his legs are already set up to do that.
Is there a name for what he's doing?
