If your pony is in a canter, sit back in the saddle and try to get your butt to stay in the saddle. Use vocal commands first, say whoa. If the pony is still unresponsive, pull back on the reins.

- Easy, obviously a trained horse is used. kicking its sides with your feet or whipping! - Well, to go for a walk you lightly kick its side with your feet and say "Walk On."

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.

How do you walk trot canter and gallop your horse?

You can simply kick or squeeze the horse with your legs. For walk, just relax. trot, you can... oh yeah just sit or post. You go up down and go up on the horses outside leg. To canter choose a letter to start on then walk or trot to it, then you put your outside leg back and inside leg on the girth. Then squeeze. No kicking. To gallop, is the same as the canter but as soon as he/she picks up the canter, squeeze or kick and loosen your grip. -Anele: age 10, ridden for one year!

How do you make a horse go faster?

If you're talking about in real life, it depends. If you want to trot you have to make sure you're in a active, springy walk then give your pony two nudges and ask them to trot on. When cantering, you should always start on a corner or whilst doing a circle. You have to go into sitting trot and put your outside leg behind the girth and your inside leg on the girth and then give them a nudge to ask for canter.
