    Squiggys so catty- love the way she moves!

    Throwin in my two cents hope ya don't mind-- she looks like she's movin her back end around the barrel and not the front but it looks like might be the leg yeildin cue- instead of puttin your leg to her towards the back (tellin her to move her hind quarters around) try cuein her more forward to get her movin that shoulder around instead and once she's lighter on the forend- id start cuein her in the middle of the ribcage to tell her to move her body away from the barrel not just the front end or hind quarter.. id work on the yeild cues for a bit.

    I get she's heavier on the forend because she's a rope horse but you're a good rider just takes a little practice-- doin good though.

    She is catty and smart, but also gets ahead of herself and gets a case of the brain-farts.
    But, it never takes her long to figure out her job!
    She's becoming quite the all arounder - roping, barrels, english, all around handy ranch pony, its awesome! I only need one horse for everything! Hahaha

    Im just lurking at rodeos until she gets running, when that point comes, watch out lol

    I think she's really front end-y.

    And you're tense and handsy. RELAX :)

    ^ I could use you to yell that at me and Selena, Hope

    If I'd just shut up and let her go she wouldn't go by barrels, hit barrels, or take any missteps...Yet here I am, thinking of her early training days all the time, instead of the solid horse she's become now.

    Funny thing with my mare was, until I realized I was so nerved up and using my hands WAAAAY too much she would fling around and be stiff herself and never have that nice arched body with plenty of flex and bend. When I finally relaxed and let her take the lead and stayed off her face unless I needed to correct her she blossomed and became a whole different (in a good way) horse! More times than not these horses know what they are doing and just thrive when we are the riders just let them do it themselves and only take up rein when necessary to correct something.

    I don't mean to start a fight-- I know its going to happen anyway but I have to disagree on you usin your hands too much- you keep your hands nice and low- I feel like they may be too low and relaxed- to be truthful, lol

    I think the discussion is that I'm nagging on her quite often. My hands might not be all over the place and up in the air n such, but I am consistently nagging on her for something and the above posters just gave me the good advice to just relax and stop bugging her for something all the time

    Thank you for taking what was said for what it is....helpful advice. Nobody was starting anything.

    Yes that's exactly what I meant....and what Jess reiterated. On super sensitive horses less is more. I've seen more horses blown up by nitpicking and tedious slow work then running the pattern.

    So basically I just need to go with the flow and only pick at important things like getting her to use her butt. The rest she will figure out on her own with experience
