MITSUBISHI FUSO CANTER

The working canter is the canter used from the beginning of a horses training, this has 3 beats and is classed as ‘three time’. The sequence of horse’s foot falls is as follows;
Outside hind leg
Inside hind and outside fore at the same time
Inside fore leg
This is then followed by a moment where all horse’s feet are off the ground at the same time momentarily. This is called the moment of suspension.

The horse can canter with a left or right foreleg lead. The lead is determined by whichever foreleg reaches the farthest forward on landing. This three time movement causes a rocking motion when ridden.

A disunited canter is a very common fault when cantering. A united canter should always be worked towards and this is classed as such when the horses leading foreleg and leading hindleg appear to be on the same side. When cantering ‘disunited’ the leading hindleg appears to be on the opposite side to the leading foreleg.

Common reasons for a disunited canter are often attributed to lack of strength, fitness, tension or a physical problem. It is vital that any sudden appearance of a ‘disunited’ canter be addressed. This could be symbolic of a physical reason why the horse cannot engage. Firstly ask yourself whether you have upped the level of training given to your horse, are you asking too much? Should his fitness be improved a little slower in order for him to be able to work up to this new level of training you are asking from him? Are the exercises you are asking too advanced? Are the circles too small or turns too sharp? If your horse becomes disunited, gently bring him back to a trot, rebalance him and start again.

The four time ‘disunited’ canter will feel uncomfortable to site to and can often be a result of the working canter being shortened by the reins alone. The result is a shuffling or incorrect canter gait. The diagonally opposite legs that are supposed to land at the same time, land individually. The three time beat of the working canter should always be maintained. If lost the three time canter can be re-established by riding actively forward. Often adopting a forward jumping seat can help the horse establish a forward going canter again which once established you can slowly sit up again and maintain the energy and impulsion.

Straightness in the canter is essential. This will ensure the horse’s weight is distributed evenly on both sides. If this is not the case uneven wear and stresses can be placed on continuously over used limbs. Straightness will enable the horse to push equally and effectively with their hind legs; these being the driving source of this gait. With a straight canter the rider will be able to keep the horse accurate on their aids and will be able to maintain a level and even contact on sides, assisting and enabling correct collection throughout the gait.

Correcting a crooked canter:
Ride the horse in a shoulder in position. By bringing the horses shoulders in off the track fractionally you are teaching the horse to become even more responsive and to move away from your leg. This will allow you to correct the horse more effectively if he moves away from the straight working line.
Work generally on suppling exercises for your horse; work on circles, turns and other lateral exercises enabling your horse to be more laterally supple. This will decrease his favouritism for one size.

As proof to this, the present generation of this model, the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution hoards accolades including the 2004 automobile of the Year. Mitsubishi continues to operate under the slogan “We are committed to providing the utmost driving pleasure and safety for our valued customers and our community. On these commitments we will never compromise. This is the Mitsubishi Motors way.”

Almost all Mitsubishi are made by the original equipment manufacturers (OEM parts). There are also Mitsubishi after-market parts, Mitsubishi replacement parts and Mitsubishi performance parts to service all customers’ needs. Auto Parts Fast’s Mitsubishi hubcaps, Mitsubishi center caps and wheel covers are perfect for your customization. Upgrading Mitsubishi parts are also obtainable for cold air intakes, spark plug wires, and high-performance shocks. Mitsubishi also provides accessories to keep car looking good all the time.

Mitsubishi have had mixed fortunes over the years with some successful models and of course you can’t really mention Mitsubishi without talking about their successes with the Ralliart division and the whole Evolution phenomenon. Mitsubishi have been quietly working on battery powered cars since the mid nineties and the MiEV (Mitsubishi innovative Electric Vehicle) is the fruits of their labor. Even the smallest details appear to have been meticulously designed, with passenger space unimpaired with the batteries underneath the floor.

The Mitsubishi cars are now beginning to be more seen on the roads than ever before. The Japanese auto manufacturers always provide vehicles that are equipped with so many high technology features and gadgets for its customers that have not been yet arrived in the western. Although a Mitsubishi Fuso may not be a name that you see or hear very often, these medium to light duty trucks have been around since the 1960s. Mitsubishi is a very well known name and their Fuso line of commercial haulers has made itself quite a reputation among truck drivers. New Mitsubishi Lancer Sport would be coming to offer customers five different engines. One of these is the VAG-supplied 140 ps engine as well as the 2.0 Jet Diesel units which are already being used in vehicles like the Grandis Di-D and the Out lander Di-D.

Mitsubishi has their Lancer EVO, which is fairly popular and performs well. This new Sport back model of the Lancer provides more versatility by combining a sporty car with the convenience of a five door wagon-like vehicle. There is even a rear cargo floor that can be dropped about three inches to provide additional cargo space if needed. Aside from the marketing and distribution of Mitsubishi parts, the company also has its nose deep in Motor sports, with its touring cars, formula racing victories, rallying activities and rally raids.
