Hi! I was wondering if were you taught to canter in 2 point or sitting?
My teacher teaches me and all of her other students to canter in two point! I have never cantered sitting in her class, though I have in make up lessons with other coaches, and before being in her class. I think she says it helps students balance and learn the motion of the canter. She also supports having a very solid foundation in flat work before starting jumping so I suppose she wants us to have a strong two point for jumping.
Anyways I was wondering were you taught to canter in two point or sitting? What are your opinions on it, and what are the pros and cons of each? And how about learning to jump going into two point a few strides before the jump, rather than over the jump with the horse? Thanks!
