Introducing the Canter
Faith got the privilege of introducing Lulu to the canter under saddle. I cantered her once under saddle towards the end of her training last year, but that was it. We were working on it on the lunge trying to get her leads, balance, and strength up. I felt like her fitness level was good the last time Faith rode her so I told her if she was comfortable she could try it. She got the wrong lead the first 2 times they tried, but then nailed it every time after that as Faith started helping her with a little extra inside rein. She is running into it a bit, but I thought they did great! Check it out!
