Canter crisis!

(26 Posts)

I'm wondering if anyone can help me sort out my canter issues?! Really struggling at the moment to co-ordinate sitting to the trot and giving clear/correct leg aids. I just get stuck in trot. I can visualise it in my head and it all looks so smooth and easy, but in reality I just can't get it together hmm
Also have a tendency to just fall off on the very rare occasion (usually a result if RI screaming 'CANTER!') I do get it going.
Any body who has a magic wand any ideas or advice would be most welcome smile

Hehehe this reminds me of an old instructor. In canter we had to say onica, ponica, super sonica and just repeat when in canter. Maintained the Rhythem well!!

As for trot to canter, good active trot, practice your sitting trot and relax. Maybe say the rhyme above to help you!!
