OMG collected canter!!!!!!!!

For the first time Chance gave me a COLLECTED canter. I didnt even ask so it was all natural. I was cantering her in circles and getting smaller and she just started to use her hind FIRST and she went on the bit and EVERYTHING. She could only give me one or 2 strides after that but that's fine :)

I thought she was acting up because she was hoping her front up to get her hind under and wouldnt continue, but then someone was noticing what she was doing and I was noticing the head and AHA!! Lol!

SO yeah I wanted to share that

I love "aha" moments! Now you just have to remember what you did so you can do it again.

Strawberrypoint, spiraling in and out at the trot or canter will almost always engage a horse's hind end at some point. Every horse has a natural circle where they will naturally fall into perfect balance because they will be bent properly from poll to tail. By spiraling in and out, you eventually hit the sweet spot and get those aha moments. Once you find that, and get both horse and rider used to what it feels like, spiral back out and try to keep the proper bend to do it on a larger circle and eventually on straight lines.
