    She looks tight & uncomfortable in the front end, very straight forelegs, 'camped under' - perhaps high/clubby feet, weak heels, &/or a body issue. But at only 6yo, hopefully a good chiro or such can take care of her.

    I'm posting this here because no one I've talked to seems to share my excitement...

    Rode her yesterday. Started with the usual 20 minutes of "oh god, I'm on my own, I'm going to die". Started just trotting her back and forth along the fence line, trying to 1) get some energy off and 2) get some sort of consistency and relaxation. After she started focusing on me, I rode her essentially in two-point, hands as low as I could get them at the walk. AND SHE ACTUALLY KEPT A LEVEL TOPLINE. I was freaking out and super excited. So I asked for a slower trot, and every few strides she'd stretch so far she looked like a western pleasure horse.

    I'm dying right now, she's never been this good for me.
