So when I get into the canter my hands flop about everywhere and it's really frustrating. It stops the horse going because i'm pulling back with my hands.
I mainly ride 2 horses in my lessons, Honey a 14.1-14.2h cob who is very lazy and is hard work or Thomas a 15.5-16.1h ish horse.
So when I ride Tom I never pull back and my hands are normally soft and quiet, whereas with Honey they're all over the place, I think it's because with Tom you don't need to give him much leg to go into the canter whereas Honey needs a lot so when i'm legging I lose my balance and my hands fail, but I don't know.
I'm still learning the canter so I was wondering if you have any tips on making my hands still and soft because I really need to focus on them, thank you!
