By telling your horse to canter...but your horse needs to know how to canter and needs lots of practise, and he also needs to know the command "canter". after he/she gets what you want, practise going from a trot to a canter. soon enough your horse will be transitioning smoothly! good luck!

How do you you go from walk to canter?

you cant go from walk straight into canter u go into trot then u go into sitting trot which is very bumpy then u go into canterfrom wowwikiwowOf course you can go from walk into canter. In fact, it is an easier transition as your horse has two or three feet on the ground at the same time, whereas in trot, he has a moment of suspension, therefore making it easier for him to become unbalanced.To go from walk into canter, a good trick is to halt your horse initially to balance him, then ask for one to two full walk paces. Sit deeply on your inside seat bone and place your outside leg behind the girth to get the weight onto the outside quarters and help him onto the correct leg. He should then go into canter. If he persists to trot, keep applying the canter aids but if he rushes and becomes unbalanced, bring him back to a walk and try again.To ask for a canter to walk transition, use half-halt aids.
