Hi there, I'm an adult beginner. Just wonder for others how long did you wait before learning to canter, or how long do you think people should wait? I've heard mixed things from instructors. I've had one instructor tell me I should work on trotting and control for a year before cantering. And I had another who wanted to have me start cantering after about 3 months of lessons.

I've cantered with that instructor a few times now and honestly it feels terrifying. Is this just something normal I should push through? Or is it a sign I'm not ready yet and should work on other basic skills?
