I went for a ride out on Danny this week and cantered him for the first time!
The first time we were walking around he field, I asked him to Trot on... He went straight into a Canter!
My bum stayed connected to the saddle the whole time and felt so smooth. Was really excited after haha
Think I must have relaxed my hips properly 'cos I wasn't expecting it.
The other couple of times I did it he Cantered straight away but I wasn't as relaxed and had my heels up so my bum was bouncing a bit in the saddle.
Still, I'm learning and was good fun!!!
