Well...so far, I've been just bringing her back down and trying again. I know that keeping them flexed and on a circle is supposed to help them pick it up correctly, so I've been working with her on it a little, but I really haven't made it far! I'm going to take some riding lessons so that somebody else will be watching her legs and helping me catch it quicker...I'll make sure to post anything that seems to make a big difference though when/if I find it! I think my mare's issue is that she's always been (and still is) primarily a trail horse, so she's not usually asked to canter on a circle. And she trots so fast that when I ask for more than a trot, I usually do mean gallop....on the trail anyway. If I can get her to trans calmer, and not so rushed, that may help too...I'll try.

Okay, had my first lesson with MacKenzie on Tuesday. We made a LOT of headway. We worked on headset and on bending a lot. We even tried a little leg yielding for the fun of it. AND we worked on her canter. After warming up with a LOT of trotting and bending, the canter was MUCH better on her good side, and I at least didn't feel like I was falling off on the bad side. It wasn't pretty though and was NOT the correct lead, but we'll work on that. I think the idea was to work on bending and being perfect at the trot in order to improve the canter.
