How to fix horse’s gallop?
I’m taking riding lessons. I’m almost finish my last certificate (lvl 4/4) and I’m struggling with gallop (aka canter) still. My trainer is really good and she tries to help, but I would like your advice and tips if any of you had this problem before.
I’m not sure if it’s a horse problem or a problem with myself since it happened to almost all the horses I took in the last years.
The problem is that I can’t keep the horse gallop and he is always breaking to trot.
For example, I do leg pressure to start, but the time I stop putting my legs he just want to trot. So I almost put leg pressure 95% of the time I gallop which is making a circle of problem.
Leg pressure -> Gallop -> Relax leg -> Trot -> leg pressure -> Gallop ...
I just want the horse to keep galloping until I want him to stop.
Do you have any tips I could try next time?
