I am not sure why?

I can see them. She looks to be getting some good muscling, have you been riding her quite a bit?

I see them now! :)

She's looking a lot better.. I don't mean that she was bad before at all but she's getting nice and toned, good muscling going on too.. I like it! How do you keep her from sunburning? I've known you and Gidget on the forum forever now and I've never once seen a picture of her sunburned?

She burns pretty bad. If she is out in open sun with no shade I use desitin cream. Works sooo much better than sunblock. It's mostly zinc. I also have to keep a fly mask on her all summer long and it's off at nights. She also has a Kool sheet that has UV protection and it helps her not burn.. :) My secret is not a secret anymore :P jk

I have been doing lots of circles,figure eights,serpentines,trotting,long trotting,slow lope and fast....I mix it up a lot and it's been helping. Her hay belly is gone now too which is nice.

I have videos of our latest gymkhana. I just haven't had the time to put them up. We placed first in key hole, 3rd in poles,and 4th in barrels :)...we are doing great for just starting out. Super happy. I will post the videos soon so you all can critique and see how we are doing.

Good!! She looks really nice with what you've been doing with her and you're both really coming along together. Can't wait to see videos!

Here are my runs.

Critique me.
I haven't taken a lesson in over month as I mostly have been conditioning her.
