Well done to you!!
I still love that natural swish of his tail!!
The ONLY thing I would strongly recommend, is until you find your seat, get a strap, or leadrope round his neck, tie your reins, and learn to sit like that. IMO, a couple of times he threw his head around, and got faster because your seat was a bit higgldy- I'm impressed if that's your 3rd time though, which made your hands go up and everywhere. In the long run, you have less to concentrate on, it may slow him down, and you won't pull him in the mouth though.
But, main thing- congrats on doing it :) I LOVE to canter, once you find that rhythm, its amazing! Well done to you x
