Cantering on the lunge line

Me and my horse Andie have been training all this season on ground manners. I've had her a year (She's 5 years old) and after a rough time last season I really hit ground training hard. I've gotten to the point where she she will trot on the lunge line but how do I get her to canter?

She keeps a good pace when she's trotting but if I try to get her up into a trot she either stops completely, or will stop and refuse to keep going in the same direction. She's eager to learn but she's starting to test her 'boundaries' . Is there a way to get her to canter on the lunge line without fussing with her?

Yes there is. Cue her, and if she doesn't speed up flick the whip while cueing again. If nothing is still happening cue her again while in a fast trot and pop her one with the whip. BUT BEFORE YOU DO make certain you are using verbal and bodily cues to SEND her forward.

I personally do not canter a horse on a longe line I would in a round pen without the longe line attached. I prefer to work them in a round pen anyways. Very rarely use the longe line.

I don't. Mainly because you need to have some control as you teach them. I tried this once with one of my guys who I had just purchased. He got into a canter and there was no stopping him. He flew around the round pen, eventually jumping the gate, getting caught in it. I will NEVER do that again, until I know I can control the horse, and have them lunging ON LINE well.

*Sidebar* TRR-I have asked before, and got no answer. Is there a reason why you feel it necessary to [B]bold[B]all you posts? Just curious. Makes me feel like you think whatever you have to say is more important than the rest of us.....JMHO
