I don't even ride his canter offline. I get longed once a week. My instructor encourages me to do more but I just panic... And when I panic, he panics... so I've taken a hiatus to build my confidence little by little.
I have started giving myself mean pep talks. Like "geez Clair. You will never rein if you are too afraid to even try picking up the canter. What kind of a rider are you?"
It worked last time... I had a pretty good lounge session.
And I work him extensively on the ground with the canter and transitions. Posted via Mobile Device
