Canter around in a dream (6)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

trance

Here is my best explanation:

'a dream' is the definition.

(thesaurus)

'canter around' is the subsidiary indication.

'around' indicates anagramming the letters.

'canter' with letters rearranged gives 'trance'.

'in' is the link.

(Other definitions for trance that I've seen before include "Hypnotised state", "Deep sleeplike state", "Semi-conscious state", "Canter in dream-state", "State or period of unconsciousness", "A half-conscious state", "Canter (anag.)", "Sleep-like, half-conscious state", "Canter into hypnotic state" and "Exalted state".)
