Guenther and I had many lovely canters today, on the beach and through the woods. He goes right into a canter with just a light suggestion or thought from a walk, trot and once during a stand still. His canter is so lovely to ride, a true rocking horse canter. It is so naturally collected and feels like we are cantering in place; it’s just pure joy. He comes down from the canter to whatever gait I hold in my mind; we are truly connected. He knows how much I love to canter and gives the very best of himself to me and just writing about it brings tears to my eyes. I’m so lucky to have such a beautiful, loving animal as my partner. He is one in a million. Tomorrow we will be riding with other horses so more to report.
