Riding the Canter, it’s a Swing, Not a Scoop

The canter is a big stepping stone in learning to ride, especially as adults.

On most horses, the canter is a different and bigger movement than walk or trot, and it’s faster too! When you are learning, riding the canter requires both figuring out the canter movement plus feeling the added adrenaline of the faster gait.

To add to the canter challenge, there are many conflicting stories about how canter should be ridden and what the movement feels like.

In this video, I will explain how I teach the canter movement – as a “swing”, not a “scoop”, and demonstrate the difference in how these two are often interpreted.

p.s. Learn from my mentor in this Free Online Workshop happening now with Wendy Murdoch. Discover the unconscious habits that may hold you back, plus a simple exercise you can do anywhere that will give you the “swing” feeling I describe!
