Honestly you should see how happy she is though her tail is in the air ears pricked forward and me having to hold her back, she just wants to run.
She needs more foundation work if she thinks any leg means go....how well is her foundation?
Does she have a solid quick stop, side pass, back, collection, move her front and hind end, pivot, collected relaxed circles at all 3 gaits, counter arcs?
How many of the above can she do in her sleep?
