She so funny about cantering jumps. We had a two stride set up at first. Most "normal" horses would jump the first cross rail, canter two strides, and jump the second one. My crazy little horse managed to canter one stride and pace the rest of the way, causing a major chip in.
It freaked her out enough that the next time, she cantered both strides. She still isn't sure if she's suppose to canter away from the jumps at the end though!
