I am my horses first rider. He listens pretty well at the walk and trot, and I ride him bareback sometimes. I lunge him everytime before I ride him. I can make him canter on a lunge and he doesnt kick out or shake his head when I do this. With the saddle on.
I don't really have a round pen to ride on, but im thinking of taking him to a feild and getting him used to trotting around in the feild for a couple of days them try to canter
I need advise on how to canter him without making it a disaster!
