    Do you think stiffness can come from lack of use?

    Well I finally had a moment to pick apart the video of me riding her. Bad news... She is DEFINITELY short in that left hind. It was more obvious in the video and a good explanation for the choppy canter. Idk how the owner missed it, she even assured me "she looks fine". Definitely sucks, I was looking forward to a project =\

    The tail switching is likely in response to the spurs which is common. If one goes to youtube and types in Solana Gay you can watch the video. It worked for me.

    I believe I posted that video on here. I ride her without spurs and she did the same for me.
