He went for a good long canter on Saturday :) No problems and he really strides out long! Kinda tucks himself up tight and pretty and goes! It's fine when I ride alone but yesterday we went in a group for a hack and we were second in the line...when we all decided to have a canter I had to trot (and it was bouncy because he was right up close!) because he couldnt manage to canter being so close behind the other horse! Poor chap was very frustrated (as was I!) and he still has that competitive streak so being stuck behind another horse was killing him!
He did so well though. We crossed 2 water obstacles and both times he never hesitated. Ok, the second one he jumped like an eventer! Lol! We laughed and said at least we know he CAN jump!
This is one horse that I trust completely :)
