Obviously then they don't want to canter, because I drop them and am expecting them to hold up their end of the bargain while I don't hold up mine. Ah well, at least I know some of the things I need to work on :). And that's what riding is all about- improving. It's a continuous challenge, haha. You never know everything!
OMG its sooo true! No matter how long you have been around horses there is so many things you don't know! Its never ending!
