    Yes, I have had the norms checked. Everything seems to check out.

    Thanks for the advice. I wish I considered her safe enough to go on trails but her brakes aren't too good. Me being older myself, I want to avoid hitting the ground at all costs. So, the only place I feel semi-safe is the ring.

    I'm enjoying the process though.

    An Update

    Well it's been a month and still I'm only riding or lunging her just twice a week. I've experimented with bits. She does not chew at all with the KK Herm Springer loose ring bit. She seems to not mind it at all.

    And she is making full circles with lunging. Each direction. When riding, I still only walk mostly and occasionally trot. The other day was the first day I could walk her on a loose rein at the buckle.

    Is your twice-a-week because you don't have the time? Some horses do better when "worked" with every day, even if it's only for five minutes.

    Yeah, I was expressing my happiness because I only get out to the barn twice a week. Not that I don't want to go more. I just don't have enough hours in the day. I was afraid I wasn't going to make any progress.
