From: Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary (1913)

 Can·ter n.
 1. A moderate and easy gallop adapted to pleasure riding.
 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.
 2. A rapid or easy passing over.
    A rapid canter in the Times over all the topics.   --Sir J. Stephen.
