That's how I feel too now. You definitely don't HAVE to post on her. She is as smooth as butter and only 14.1hh! She really is an easygoing joy. She is the only horse I've ever stood up on, turned around on bareback and can slide off her butt. And to be such a good girl without training except for me! A miracle.
However, I am beginning to think that she has a hip issue....either a deformity or an injury she sustained as a foal. It doesn't seem painful to her, but more annoying. She tries so hard and when her body doesn't do what she wants or gets tangled up, she crow hops and starts over. But it's not consistent either. Sometimes she is very smooth and coordinated. I will have the vet re-evaluate her again this spring. Otherwise continue to hopefully strengthen her a little more.
I'm hoping you can see this video. You can really see it the second time she canters in it. https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?...type=3&theater
