How do you get your horse into a canter?

To be in the right position to canter it is always a good idea to ask for it in a corner or whilst turning because it helps your horse to start on the right leg, the right leg should always lead to help the horse balance. To ask your horse to canter you have to go into sitting trot, if you don't your horse wont know what to do. When your in sitting trot squeeze your horse and ask for canter, if it doesn't respond give it a kick and if necessary whip it. Whilst in canter try and sit in the saddle as much as possible without bouncing around it will be uncomfortable for your horse. It may be easier and more comfortable if you gently rock backwards and forwards when in canter.

A small amount of pressure from your outside leg just behind the girth will tell a well-trained horse to canter. If you are asking for the caner and the horse refuses, first make sure there is nothing causing him pain (a vet can look at his back and hocks for problems) and that the saddle fits without pinching. A horse won't canter if he's in pain. Make sure you ask for the canter from a steady, forward-moving trot and if the horse still refused to canter, follow up with a tap from a whip until he gets the idea. Be careful not to pull back on the reins, as this will just confuse the horse

How do you teach a horse walk through canter?

first of all you need to establish the basic stand-walk-trot-canter. Then maybe work on going from a steady (not lazy) trot to a canter. when you are confedent your horse knows the command for canter, then you will need to get your horse in an active walk around the riding arena. When he feels like he's really working and coming off your leg and listening, and feels like if you ask him to do something he will do it straight away, then when you get to a corner or a long side give the command you have taught your horse that means canter, (using voice helps) then push him forwards into canter. If it doesnt work and he simply trots, ask him for canter imediatly. repeat this, if it is still not working, then your horse is not listening to you, or you may need to re-teach him the command for canter.
