So I've been working with this green pony. She's got a ton of potential and is SO willing to work! A very quick learner!
But every time I ask to pick up the canter she starts to speed trot and seconds later she starts bucking and rearing. I can bring her down easily, not a huge scary fit that she throws but enough to be a problem.
I have no idea how to get her to stop. We just keep going in circles with the whole thing. Trot nicely -> ask for the canter -> speed trot! -> bucking/rearing .
Should I try lunging her and see how she does?
She does the same thing after she jumps too. I don't know if it's because she's young and is excited it what. She doesn't pin her ears back when she throws the fit either. Nothing hurts her either. I have a video of what I'm talking about if anyone wants to see.
Okay, thanks so much guys! I'm riding her again tomorrow so any advice would be appreciated:)
