I accidentally cantered. I was trying to push Stinkers haunches to the left (he has gone back to trying to trail them to the right) and he hopped up into the canter. It was a lovely counter canter, so I let him canter a circle and then brought him back to the trot. It felt really balanced, there was no bolting, and he calmly came back to the trot. Yes he got tense and short and I had my hands in my lap and I was leaning and I was in need of a modified fly bonnet courtesy of SprinklerBandit. I seriously think of that every time I catch myself looking down and it still hasn't cured me. I don't know what that says about me, but we CANTERED!!!!!!
Blurry screenshot for the win! I love how much he is loading that hind.
