Well, I have had my mare from about 6-7 months but only really started riding her 3-4 months ago (due to so much snow).
We had her with a small 'producers' and she just could not come right, especially her canter! Her trot became really good and lovely and then she would go and spoil our show by not canter or running into it.
We moved her to another small 'producer' and she has her for a month before a big championship show and she got a lot better but her canter was still a problem and then on the 2nd day (4 day show) Sally (prodcer) said try not sitting when asking for canter (WHAT?!). Okay so I did this and she went striaght into canter?!
Sally said it may be her being arsy or because it is above her sexual organs it would be uncomfortable and just enough 'pain' for her to say f***k off.
I was just wondering if any of you have ever had a mare or know a mare to be like this? :) x
