I just bought an off the track standardbred mare, I saddle broke her (didn't think it would be that easy!
) and have ridden quite a few times but i'm having trouble getting her up to a canter. I'm pretty sure she was a trotter and I have seen her canter in the fields with my other mare so she is capable. I've been told that using jumps help, but i'm a western rider I can't just go around jumping without experience, plus I don't have the saddle for it. I was thinking ground poles but i'm not sure how to go about this. Please help me!
