Leg in the canter.
No, really, truly, LEG. SQUEEZE. HARD.
Seriously much better last night when I used leg FOR REAL, hard squeeze, like a transition to trot squeeze. I think because of Trudi's tendancy to run at the canter that even when told to use leg at the canter, I used only a little, not enough. Until last night, when I thought about how I really needed her to sit more in the canter, and needed her hind legs under her more, I started to actually squeeze, hard, and then was able to collect her, and got that canter-walk transition I was looking for. And then we did it again. And then I texted trainer and apologized for every time he told me to use leg in the canter, and I kinda did but not really.
