Umm, well, I've been "re-riding" for the last three and a half years and have been cantering for the last 2.5 years of that and I am STILL sometimes worried about the canter. I have to feel secure in my saddle (stick well), have to trust the horse won't spook or trip or make a sudden turn in the arena, etc. LOL I gallop on the horse I've been riding for two years, but sometimes I am still unbalanced and fearful. I ride mostly Western, but i like English and my horse goes both ways. I have yet to canter him in the all-purpose English saddle I have--it's so wispy and I'm such a chicken without sometimes to hang onto, just in case.
So, don't feel bad!
