    My friend was new to riding and bought her first horse about 2 years ago. She wanted so badly to lope / canter but her mare wouldn't do it. Bottom line, the mare knew the rider wasn't ready and was protecting her from getting hurt. Flash forward 1 year.......(yes, an entire year)....my friend is happily loping and her mare is a very willing partner.
    You don't run before you learn how to stand, then walk. Take your time, learn the correct fundamentals of balance, a proper seat, and proper cues before you add speed to the mix. You have many years to ride and it is well worth it it to learn slowly and correctly.

    Oh wow, only 3 lessons? It took me a couple months of riding before I even thought of cantering, or JUMPING for that matter!

    If you want to canter/gallop/jump get an instructor! There is NOTHING bad about an instructor (a good qualified one). My coach still learns and asks questoins about riding!

    You can tell the difference of people who go into a sport not knowing what they're doing. You can tell the horse and rider are both out of control and it is SCARY to watch, because you never want to see someone not suceed. So please, for your wellbeing and Gracie's, get a good, certified coach.
