If you feel uncomfortable with the horse for some reason, ask for another mount – I have seen people who were finding the canter challenging with one particular horse, however quickly got a much better feel for it simply by trying it on a different horse that had a different (or slower) canter. Much like trots can vary between horses, so can the canter.
Nice arena there, I'll say that much. ;)
The horse I was on she gave me just that week because he was a little slower than my usual mount, and OTTB whom I love. Rusty ( horse is the video) needs a little more leg to go, so I was at a full workout getting him to canter.
Okay so I should just do more cantering now? I'll post another video in about 2 weeks, hopefully more detailed.
Thanks, you should see the stables! There's a video on my YouTube channel if you want to see haha.
Thank you all for the input.
