Don't do something you're not ready for. If you are afraid to, I would say go no faster than a trot until you are bored out of your mind! You'll realize that it's better to just go for it! Trust me, I've been there, I used to lease a very speedy horse and I was terrified to canter, we would turn him out and let him gallop around before EVERY ride, and then my mom would have to canter him for 10 minutes, and he'd still be full of it. That's what I get for loving arabs, lol. Just go for it! It'll be worth it in the end and who knows? Maybe you'll find the canter to be rather comfy.
