    I used to have an issue with sitting the canter as well. I didn't even fall off, I was just scared! I got over it by having my trainer put my horse on a lunge line and me hanging on to the "oh crap strap" on the saddle (do you have one of those?). I held the strap until I felt comfortable enough to not use it. Then I held the reins instead. And finally I got off the lunge line and now LOVE cantering.

    I hope that helped!

    Hell if you do a good 2-point at the trot, canter will be cake.

    It goes on the front of your saddle. You can hold it if you need to while you gain balance and gradually let go once you get it.

    I was taught 2-point, then I was taught half seat, as a position between 2-point, and normal seat, that brings you out of 2-point, so your not holding on-to the horses mane, but are still enough off the seat, that going into 2-point is almost effortless.
