I just started the canter 3 lessons ago. We've been doing it in 2 point, but last class, my teacher wanted to do the sitting canter. >.> I just couldn't do it. First, we tried by having me start in 2 point and slowly slide back. I couldn't at all. After the 4th or so attempt, we just moved on to other stuff. But near the end of the lesson, she wanted to try one last time, except differently. We went from sitting trot straight to canter. I actually managed... except my legs did weird things, lol. But still, felt totally tensed up. I've never tensed up before, nor ever felt so, uh, unsure. Not when I started, not even when my horse spooked or went into canter without asking for the very first time (Before I learned it) nor when I first learned the canter in 2 point. Any tips?? >.> Or just gonna have to gain some courage?
