While Sierra is right in a few spots in her post..There is a good bit of knowledge that she is lacking..
Lark was ran at home AND shown by the guy who cowboy'd her, between that and the bicycle chain bit to start with..not the makings for a light mouthed horse.. Also, Sierra and I both know that "D" is a VERY heavy handed rider and is all over the place when he rides..
The day my sister rode her a few years ago, Lark was SO heavy mouthed then that she ran into the fence with my sister on her and from Holly pulling on the reins so hard she tore a good chunk of skin and meat off of her hand trying to get Lark to sit and turn..
The show that Sierra ran Lark at in 2007, they drugged Lark to try to get her to back down a little, then because of "jocky errors" Sierra fell off..
Sierra, while YOU may think she's "done", I don't believe she's "ran her course", I just don't believe it's going to be "fixed" in a few months.. I'd rather not push her too fast, I'll wait it out and let her figure it out.. I have more than a few cards up my sleeve for bringing her back around, but however I do it, it's not going to be by force..
The baler twine is classy... my comp wont let me see the other pic.
The bit isn't mine, and I have enough respect for the owner to not mess with their "stuff".. I'm just trying it to decide if I want to find and buy one.. So classy or not, it works, and it's not mine so I'm not going to cut it off..
