Canter around in a state of abstraction (6)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

trance

Here is my best explanation:

'a state of abstraction' is the definition.

(I've seen this before)

'canter around' is the subsidiary indication.

'around' is an anagram indicator.

'canter' with letters rearranged gives 'trance'.

'in' is the link.

(Other definitions for trance that I've seen before include "Half-conscious state", "Dazed state", "Catalepsy", "Deep sleeplike state", "Canter in dream-state", "Reverie", "Coma", "Abstracted state", "Daze" and "A half-conscious state".)
