My understanding of having your outside leg back is to "push" the rear end over to get the correct lead. Then you ask for the canter with the inside leg.

I know English is different than Western and I'm not that familiar with English. In Western, or at least the way I ride, I don't do anything with the reins. Also, I don't keep leg on as Velvet suggested. The horse should be responsible enough for it's own feet to stay at the same speed, but that has to be taught to them.

controlling the hind end without giving the canter aid

It's an older thread, but it explains an alternate canter cue and it's logic. =)

I have always taught my horses to respond to seat more than leg or rein. I tend to squeeze with my leg for the corresponding lead and lift my seat. When doing lateral work the leg aids do not confuse my horse because my seat is not asking for the canter. But I was originally taught outside leg behind the girth.
