So lately, like the past few weeks to a month, I have been feeling incredibly stuck and low about my progress as a rider and with Bunny.
I just don't really know what to do because a lot of the time when I go to get her she avoids me, which didn't happen before. She will gallop around her pasture for thirty minutes until I get her into her stall and can halter her. This was only a problem when she was having a rare off day before.
When I first got her almost a year ago we made rapid, continuous progress. I taught her things and my riding got better. It took work, but that work was going somewhere. Even if it was slow progress I was happy.. we learned to get a long with each other and even started going over a few low jumps, which she absolutely loved.
Today she refused almost every jump I tried to get her to go over, and when she didn't she didn't give it any effort and knocked the poles (Which is easy to do, they are just set on top of buckets).
I haven't changed anything, no pain, her tack fits right and she's very healthy. I guess I just need some encouragement. I don't expect anybody to fix this, I'm just feeling down about it.
