    So you are riding her one handed in a snaffle now?

    She is really cute and you sit her so very well. The only thing I can see is that she tosses her head around and turns counterbent sometimes. I guess that was here wanting to go back to the "girls". I saw you went to two hands to support her when needed which was nice.

    I wonder if when circleing, when she starts to counterbend, if you could slow her down a little bit with your seat and really get one or two deep steps under with the inside hind, and feel her round out with her outside body (get longer on the outisde). Slowing her down and riding her for a bit seated, feeling each step. Then when you feel her respond, give her the rein and let her "coast"
    Theres a faint feeling that she is just rushing through everything.

    I'd go back to two hands in a snaffle and work on bending properly. Once you got that, work put her in the bridle right now, she has the potential as she looks to have a powerful back end, just nothing to do with it. Once you get her round, she'll level out and slow down.

    Tasia, that what got me into trouble in the first place.

    It's actually a JR. Cowhorse bit. I want her like she was in the last clip, and she's getting there. I had more video like the last clip, but a cloud came and blocked out the sun and made it all dark.

    My main goal is nice cruise control right now.

    Agree with Tiny. I would like to see the stop on her; love that butt!

    Also agree with Sky. Chin up! Feel your diagonals, keep your other hand relaxed, so your shoulder doesn't drift forward, and you aren't tempted to tense up through the arms-core-seat etc.

    Very nice! I really like how the two of you go along. :)
