Thank you so much tinyliny!! Oh your posts and advice are always so helpful. Her canter has been quite the surprise, I didn't think she was ready for it, having just started trotting again, but she actually offered one and didn't pace out of it (she's a Standardbred for those who don't know)... she's only wobbled maybe three times now in the total of cantering but she's quick to change back to her trot... however she has a really bad habit for leaning in on her circles (and me) for balance in the canter, I know some of that is rider error, and the rest is down to her being green and not really *knowing* how to canter with any balance. She has moments where she gets a little lift in it... and then she throws in a little pig root which has been rather harmless for me considering I'm very nervous with my injury!! I haven't cantered in two years so I'm slowly remembering all my little habits that need fixing too! To be honest I've decided to stop focussing on the canter and back to improving the trot, we're now able to change rein without breaking into a walk so I call that a success! It's very hard with all that grass out there, but I have it coming out of my ears at present so I'm slowly going to address my riding area by strip grazing it and riding in another area. We also changed to a Oval Mouth Snaffle instead of the tom thumb and she's going very well in it!
Cacowgirl; thank you so very much for your comment, it truly means a lot!! I'm trying my best and so is Honey. Am hoping by April we can head off to a Green Horse Show (just walking and trotting only) so am working on many things and getting her fit before I attempt to ask her to school for me... been so long so I might take awhile to find the buttons again!
