Im not using a trainer, after today's session im 90% sure I can do this myself and with the girl that wants to help me with chance!
But thanks for the concern appy! Todays session with chance went so well We accaully cantered a few steps with a small buck but I found that if I canter her 5 laps around on the lunge both ways then trot her for a while then I canter her again 5 las both ways then rode it went pretty well!! I was so happy the girl said that I wasnt as unpatient as I usually am and I was a ton more confident which helped out a lot
Ill look into the mare magic thing which I don't think that's our problem ill ask my barn owner about it :)
Oo and just wanted to add chance will be getting her teeth floated in august They took a look at her teeth and said she can wait for bit longer.
I just need ideas on how to get chance to have a more collected trot.
Today was like really good we jumped over 1ft or over [again small but don't want to push her I know she can jump over 5 ft though] without much of a problem just a bit of excitment but came out of it then just trotted around obsticals with small spooks but worked threw them Im really getting excited about how well this is going! I guess she just needs to be worked everyday!
I also gave chance a bath today! She was soo funny she was playing with the hose and the water got me soaked lol but it was fun :) She tried to kick out at me or the water when it touched her teets.
Tomorrow since ill be up there on my own after our lunge session which last about a good 20 mins to tire her out before I ride her hopefully we wont have to do that much longer but I think we will. Ill get some video of us I hope :) I guess people who saw me riding kept saying how I keep a nice light seat nicely placed hands while riding and I stay in "rythem" with my horse. And I guess I keep my legs in the right position almost all the time. So I guess im happy about having someone finally critique my riding in person!
Hmm I think im done with my post for now lol
I still need to get pictures of the place .. soon
