  Canter \Can"ter\ (k[a^]n"t[~e]r), n. [An abbreviation of
     Canterbury. See Canterbury gallop, under Canterbury.]
     1. A moderate and easy gallop adapted to pleasure riding.
        [1913 Webster]
  
     Note: The canter is a thoroughly artificial pace, at first
           extremely tiring to the horse, and generally only to be
           produced in him by the restraint of a powerful bit,
           which compels him to throw a great part of his weight
           on his haunches . . . There is so great a variety in
           the mode adopted by different horses for performing the
           canter, that no single description will suffice, nor
           indeed is it easy . . . to define any one of them. --J.
           H. Walsh.
           [1913 Webster]
  
     2. A rapid or easy passing over.
        [1913 Webster]
  
              A rapid canter in the Times over all the topics.
                                                    --Sir J.
                                                    Stephen.
        [1913 Webster]
