thanks everyone for the lovely comments!
We are working on the mounting thing. After every ride, I do do it a couple of times. I never thought of backing her up when i'm on her. I'll have to do that.
When i'm not up there by myself, my fiance holds her. But I was there alone yesterday so I did what I had. But I did make her stop before I swung over.
Thanks JDI, That means a lot :)
I do pat her and tell her good girl when she halts. It's hard to tell because i'm further away, but I when she does halt, I always pat her and stuff.
FGRI do have a training system, similar to the pessoa, that i'm going to be using on Vega. I'm hoping that will help her.
Rach- As far as trotting her. She doesn't go slow, won't go slow. If I had no control over her, she'd be cantering around the whole ring as soon as I get on. I find that if I sit, she's slower than when I post.
Thanks to AKPaint Lover, I wrapped her tail like that to make it longer and thicker. It's really working. I'm only going to do it keep it in until the flies start to appear, then she'll have her tail back.
Kitten_Val-I'd like to jump her, we started over the summer and took a break. But I love jumping and she seemed to enjoy it. I would love to do cross country with her. It looks like tons of fun. I might as well throw some dressage in there too :) I just need to further my training with her.
Abby-i love those breeches. They are so comfy and everything! They're definitely not the whitest anymore, but I don't plan on showing so its all good.
Delgregans Way- I've only owned her for about a year, and she was pretty much like that when I got her. I just need to be there more and really work with her, which is hard, but i'm making it work. I think once she gets more manners and gets older, she should hopefully be better.
Thanks again for the nice critiques and suggestions
I also talked to my fiance, i'm going to be riding Gem to work on my position. I'll post videos of that too once I get one him and everything. He's going to be out of shape tho.
