I need a field to run in to get Abby balanced at a lope/gallop instead of an enclosed arena in circles, then go back to the arena to work on barrels.
I kiss for a trot and then a little squeeze will get her loping. If I'm off balance, she'll crowhop and since she has fast lope, by the time I'm all good, we're doing a 180 because we've reached the end of the arena. She's got a bouncy lope, so it takes me a stride or two to get situated and balanced.
She loves to run, that's for certain. If I lunge her and she's in a particularly mareish mood and doesn't want to listen to me, she'll lope until she can't lope anymore.
