Thanks, Elana! And yeah, that was definitely an issue here.. primarily mine. It was mainly because I was a bit uncomfortable at first but towards the end, I did give her much more rein. She was super willing but I do know I held her back a bit.
I agree with the side reins. My instructor has a set that we've used on Major so I'd definitely hook them up. Honey still needs to work on balancing herself, but I know I need to adjust my riding to accommodate her needs.. as I'm so used to a natural framed, lazy beyond words QH.
I really appreciate your advice though. I'm going back down this weekend to try her out again, hopefully with my instructor.. and I'll keep everything you said in mind. I'll also see about getting a video of her on a lunge line.
Forever loved, never forgotten; my beautiful Indie. <3 Hoofprints on my heart.
