Is it possible for a horse to trot so much that it can negatively affect how the horse itself canters even with a balanced canter?
No. If the canter is balanced, then the canter is balanced. Some horses have a 'odd' way of moving.
I am not understanding how this horse had a bad canter?
Some horses prefer to trot and there is always present the feel that they are going to drop out of the canter.
