If you do ride him again, ask her politely for one. Ya know, "I don't think I can get him to go.. I'd like the extra encouragment incase I have trouble, it'd make me feel better" or something. :)
When you canter, keep your back arched and sit up. Don't post, lol. :).. I still have trouble with staying in my saddle so don't feel bad if your bouncing a little! (:
Make sure your sitting trot is good and you know how to sit without bouncing a lot before you start to canter.

I am quite good a posting trot. I have the occasional bounce, but that's usually because the horses "stride" or whatever you call it is awkward.

You'll need to learn to sit and sit deep-- not so deep that the horse stops, but deep enough so the horse doesn't bump you out when you're cantering-- which almost happens to me when I'm not paying attention. :P

If you're trying to wake a horse up and get him to go, you don't want to tighten the reins! That wake up call should come from your legs. If you tighten the reins, you need that much more leg to keep driving him forward. If nothing else, you could use spurs or a crop. Just be patient. It'll get better. ;)

Thankyou. I have a lesson tomorrow and I am going to tell my riding instructor that I would like to try riding on another horse. If noone is riding Sonnett and he is rideable I may ask to ride him as he is very enjoyable to ride.
Thanks for the tip, I had no idea how to wake him up so I kept jigging the reins to try and get his attention. The week before I had also been on a different pony that was tired and he had fully-on tripped over and both his front legs went down. It was very scary...
That's the bad thing about being the last group of the day...the horses have already been ridden alot and are exhausted and don't want to do what you want...

Remember to squeeze constantly so he'll wake up. :)

And cantering, if you post while asking for the canter your horse won't go.

Don't jig the reins-- remember-- he has a hunk of metal in his mouth. Just give constant squeezes to keep him up!
