In september 2011 I bought the sweetest 5yr old Connemara pony. The issue is maintaing the course. I've had the vet check her over and have her saddle correctly fitted. She will canter for approx 5-6 strides and then breaks into trot. She does this on the longue on hacks and in the arena/ school. I asked my RI watch us last week. She advised its just the case of building up the horses muscles that allow her to keep cantering. RI told me that when she breaks the canter to calmly re-establish the trot and give signals for cabter depart in time the correct muscles will develop in turn canter will be mainted. So just wondering if that's the case or is there anything else I can do to help my horse.
