Well, speaking fron experience here with squiggy, when I ask for the canter, I like to half halt to bring her under herself and rating down, then I take up a firm contact and ask for the canter. And then just go with it, even if you have to two get into a half seat a bit to get yourself set. The horse might be going a bot faster than you want, but when you sit back down, the horse should feel it and also slow down
