    I give lessons to a little girl and 2 weeks ago she cantered for the first time on her horse. She almost fell off. And every time after that she has almost fallen off. She has to hold onto the saddle to stay on. In my experince. Most people fall off at the canter. But we all have different experinces I suppose. Bottom line is. The OP shouldn't be letting anyone ride her horse period. Family or not.

    Sorry to double post, it wouldn't let me edit. O_O

    I let other [knowledgeable] people ride my horse. I like to see her under saddle, and I want to make sure she will respond to other people. If I ever had to sell her, which is very, very unlikely, it would be really hard to if she would only ride well and respond to me. It's silly to never let anyone on your horse, and it isn't in your horse's best interest. That doesn't mean throw any random person up there, it could be your instructor or trainer, someone who also knows your horse. But either way, a rideable horse should be just that, rideable. Just my thoughts. =]

    The only time I've ever heard of or seen someone fall off at the canter was when they were bareback, vaulting, or the horse skidded to a halt because the rider [me o_O] didn't turn at the corner. That was my first canter ever.

    My point is, if a rider has complete control and is perfectly competent at the trot, they are ready for the canter. To be competent at the trot means they have a seat, and if they have a seat, they can canter. It's a different gait, and takes some getting used to, but they are ready for it. If a rider doesn't have a seat, they shouldn't be cantering.

    No one rides him now apart from mum and I. If I want to see him under saddle working I will ask my aunty or Jalah if she wants to. I've fallen off her pony enough times so we are all good.

    A rider can have a good seat at the walk and trot. They have to develop a seat at the canter by practicing. You have to learn to sit a canter you just don't develop it without doing it.
