Yeah, I actually did that today! I couldn't get my 2 point just right, so my instructor had me stand up, to remember to put my weight in my feet- I got so caught up in getting that right that I went a lap more than I had to in 2 point haha.
I had no idea that that I would be cantering, she had the girls canter like normal, and then she called out to me if I wanted to try... and I gave it a shot. It was a little frightening, and very exciting at the same time- though today, it was mostly just exciting- I actually pulled myself together and got one good lap of a nice canter in. I was actually moving with the horse, butt stayed in the saddle, my feet where they were supposed to be and it felt great!
