Ah I understand now. Well the canter was part of the exercise. It wasn't X that was deciding to canter, my trainer would tell me 2 or 3 strides away to make him canter since I wasn't comfortable cantering completely to the jump.

I really like that idea, so I'll try and mention it to my trainer next lesson. Thanks for clarifying. :)
Thanks also Puck! I will keep that in mind as well. :)
