So, Freedom (Spooky Spook) is a few weeks into her second month of "formal" training and I experienced her canter last night. Hah! Watched my trainer first and all I could think was, OMG &*%$#! It was blazing fast! Apparently, she has slowed down a lot too...lol. So, tried it out, managed to stay on, but am thinking I will need a case of beer, carton of cigarettes, duct tape, and velcro and I'll be good to go for next time...lol.
