What are the cues for canter?

What are the cues for canter?
First leg yield INTO the OUTSIDE aids using the inside aids. Half halt with the outside rein, lift the inside rein, and cue with the outside leg. You can put the outside leg back a SMIDGEN but keep the inside leg at the girth. After the half halt is initiated, keep rein pressure even and keep your body still. A little cluck is acceptable if necessary. Have fun!
