Oh I understand what you are saying. I am asking the vet about this as well tomorrow. She is getting a full exam tomorrow. Her canter I feel is greatly due to balance issues. She was just recently broke to ride at 18. Her canter is getting much better as we work with bending. Her trot has also improved since her hooves have been fixed. It still isn't a full extension but it isn't as choppy as before. I also wouldn't consider her hot at all. She's very much calm until I ask for more, then she can go all day.
