I posted a few days ago, about cantering problems everytime I get ready to go into the canter with her, I freeze up and back out of it, I keep thinking the other horses I have rode and think of the times I've fell off and such.
On a side note, she has been doing better when I take the dog away and then put the dog back in there like a reward for doing a good job, I think she perfers that over treats.
When you ride do you usually give them reins or keep them kinda tight, I keep them tight because its like if I don't then she might take off. Or am I just being over cautious. She is a great horse I just let my past and past horses come between us.
