Ok ok heres the long story LOL

I took her to 1 run. We smoked the 1st barrel....ran her ass off to the 2nd...smoked it...then on the way to the 3rd...she dived in on it totally disregarding my leg cues to move over. That is NOT like her. We wouldve been top 8 in the 1D.

August 25-26 I took Copper to Lance Graves' clinic. As my luck would have it I didnt get to ride due to Onyx bucking me off the Wednesday before but I talked to him and he agreed to work her for me the 2 days of the clinic, so it worked out.

Since Copper has been back under saddle I was having problems with her listening to me and wanting to dive in on my pockets. The 1st day he worked her she was HORRIBLE. Not completing her turns and cutting her pocket off. So L took her off the pattern and drilled her the 1st day. Heres the video of her misbehaving

She was cutting in on her 2nd and "noodling" on the backside.

Lance talked to me after he worked her pretty hard and told me she's either hurting in her backend, or she thinks she is. I told him about her abcess etc and he said he had a Special Leader gelding do the same thing after a injury. He thought he was still hurt and had to get it into his head to LISTEN, that he was fine. He told me we'd find out day 2 if she was hurting or if she was just being stubborn.

Day 2 comes around and she is listening better and is not limping, so Lance decided it was in her head. He told me she was "too broke" at the poll and I needed to focus on stiffening her up and keeping her between my legs. He said we have to change her way of thinking...that I need to rope off of her...pull logs until she's exhausted then trot and lope the barrels..walk then quit. Let barrels be the easy thing. He also said that all the training and athletic ability was there I just need to retrain her mind.

Here he is working her the 2nd day.

Trotting her through working on her corners..keeping her picked up and at a relaxed trot w/o speeding up

Loping her through

Im bummed she didnt behave as well as Id hoped, but Im glad its not just me and the way I ride causing her to do this. Heck...she does it with the number 1 rider in the world too Oh...and he rode all of the horses including mine in an o-ring snaffle.

So once Im cleared to ride in a week that's the plan. Lots of slow work like in the videos and working...dragging logs etc and then do some exhibitions .

I learned alot at the clinic and WOW, is Lance a true horseman. I loved watching him work all of his futurity mares and here him talk about everything. I wish I wouldve had more memory on my phone to record more .

I came away with a few new "tweeks" in my training plan for Onyx, but Lance said I was on the right path which made me feel great. He told me not to give up on Copper that she had "it" she just needs to get over some things.
He also patterns using weight in his sturrips and points. Every single horse at the end of the 2nd day was smoking a set.

I made some new friends as well to haul and ride with, which is always good

A few pics

Waiting her turn

Afterwards...worn the heck out!

I rode for the 1st time yesterday. She did FABULOUS. So hopefully Ill be hauling to some runs soon. Onyx too!
I've been super busy w school and being injured...but things have slowed down. So theres yalls update

..Chuckle..I still wish I could have seen that.

Copper looks AMAZING! I've followed the thread but haven't posted yet. I mean she beefed up when she was there and then recent pictures on your facebook.. She looks great. It's a shame she was a nerd at the clinic but at least it's all in her mind and it isn't a huge set back like the abscess was.
