I've been riding since last september. Does anyone have an idea on when my coach might have me canter? I can walk fine, do both sitting and posting trot and change diagonals, and go over poles and gridwork every lesson. I know it's up to my trainer when I'll start, but I'm just an impatient person. Oh, and I've cantered once on a lungeline for about five strides back in November or so... do I need more experience before I canter? Could my coach be holding back because I fell off my horse a few weeks ago in a cross-rail jumping incedent? I was compeletely fine and took the jump again without falling... What do you guys think? Will I start cantering soon, or will I have to wait another few weeks?
Thanks for any advise!
