I Cantered Cinny for the first time yesterday, it felt like a train wreck ha ha. I thought he was trying to get his head to buck, but looking at the video I think he just wanted his head. Overall it was very very vertical and he felt like he was crow hopping more than cantering....watching the vid I now see he wasn't.
Remember, Cinny is a Green Reclaim. In this vid I am riding him with an indian knotted hackamore and it's what he does best in. Once we get comfortable under saddle and working well, we will work on bitting.
Oh, and I was also trying out a used saddle I might buy so at the walk I am talking to my fiance' (videotaping) about the saddle.
My own critiques....
1) I need to loose um....50 pounds
2) I need a HELMET on
3) I need to relax and give him his head
4) I Lean a bit too forward at the posting trot
5) I need to relax more at the canter and give him his head and stop being a scared baby ha ha.
