When I first graduated to THE CANTER! I was super excited and decided what I felt the difference was.
I commented those thoughts on Bob The Equestrians' Blog today, and just wanted to share here as well.
The difference between the Trot and the Canter:
Trot - Human begs Horse "stay, with me."
Canter- Horse shouts excitedly "COME WITH ME!!!"
That is how it struck me the first time I dared allow Pippi to take me with her........
