Awesome, and congrats! Cantering was a big milestone for me. The first time I cantered was "accidental." I was having a lungeline lesson on an Arab barrel horse named Bullet (my initial reaction to riding Bullet:
), and he cantered a few strides when I asked for him to step out into his trot. It was another Arab really taught me how to ride the canter well. Trotting will get easier with practice.
