Learning to Canter

Canter can be quite nerve-wracking when you first start. It is important that you have a good balance and are confident working with and without stirrups in the trot. Before you are able to ask the horse to canter you need to understand how the horse canters and what the rider needs to do to help the horse in the canter transition. Once you have this basic understanding the next stage is learning to follow the movement and stay in balance with the horse during a canter.
