Awesome, and congrats! Cantering was a big milestone for me. The first time I cantered was "accidental." I was having a lungeline lesson on an Arab barrel horse named Bullet (my initial reaction to riding Bullet: :shock, and he cantered a few strides when I asked for him to step out into his trot. It was another Arab really taught me how to ride the canter well. Trotting will get easier with practice. :wink:
That is wonderful, my daughter is taking lessons and started cantering in her last lesson. Just for a few strides but I could tell she was thrilled, and it gave her a big sense of accomplishment too.
Awesome! The first time is always the best. The first time I loped was on an old mare named Ally and that same day was the first day I jumped as well. We loped up a hill and there was a tiny log that she decided to jump over. Lol two learning experiences in one day!
