When riding solo my horse will happily walk, trot or canter up a hill. I really thinks he likes it.

In a group going at a trot or a canter is way too undignified for him. He jumps uphill. Many little bouncy jumps until he's at the top.

Not really a choice. She's the only reason I got into riding (well, that and Zyrtec - long story ), co-owns my horse & keeps it at her place (deal is that she does feeding &c, while I pay the bills), has the horse trailer and all the associated stuff. Plus she & her husband (who doesn't ride) are two of my closest friends.

And the other people we sometimes ride with are mostly worse
