I have a very lazy horse (she's a Percheron, so that should go without saying), and she's been under saddle for about 3 months now, but I've only been riding her regularly for about a month.
She's coming along great, except at the canter. I have a hard time getting her to canter. When I'm trying to get her to go from a trot to a canter, I have to sit really deep in the saddle and sort of push her into it with my hips. I guess that's the best way to explain it. Like I sort of push forward with my hips and that somehow forces her to transition from a trot to a canter
Do you all know what I'm talking about? It works for me and my horse, so I'm not complaining, but I just want to know if this is something everybody does, or if I'm just crazy/weird/innovative.
