    how far is too far???

    Hey guys! Wow I haven't been on for a while...lots of new names!

    ok so heres the problem....
    my horse (keva) and I had been doing very well last year..i had just gotten her in febuary that year and we had showed very well..so at the end of the show season I took her out on a trail ride, to give her a break from ring work....she went well, but the next time I took her to the ring, she flipped...i guess she rather spend her workout session on the trails! So this year we have started to work again, and after a week or two I have gotten her back to doing work with out making a big bucking and backing up and throwing her head seen...she is doing well, only she has a limit, that limit could be anything, from time of doing circles , to time she will tollerate the crop (which I only use to remind her to keep up the pace) to time she wants to do troting poles to time she wants to work . It's very hard to not break that limit... some times it takes an half hour some times an hour ,somes time 5 minutes.!

    Now how do I know how far is to far?!

    Now just to let you know, Keva is a good mare, get ground manners and a sweety so I hope this message doesn't make her seem like an mean horse or nasty, some times we have great rides, and I want our riding time to be enjoyable...so how do I try to fix this?
    sorry about the 'Novel'
