Ladybugs, I know I'm lucky, but she was actually the deal of a century! I paid $2200 for her, because she can be hard to handle on the ground, and hadnt had much training for an 8 year old

Ok- This is what came to mind first, sorry its more of a riding crit I guess... but I think. Before jumping a lot, you need to work on her topline and getting her collected under saddle. When she's all stretched out like she is in the pictures you're riding on her spine, and that can make you- and her- hurt. Get her in a round pen, and get her balanced. That's also very important. When she's balanced, then she'll feel confident, and be easier to work with and ride, less on the forehand, and more from the tail to the nose. Once you've got her down in a walk trot canter and she's well collected, then start jumping her in saddle over jumps. Until then, I would recommend free jumping her.

She's a Very pretty mare though. I like her, and with work, you guys will make a great pair... :)
