Well without writing a novel I just want to say that the trainer I had working with Candi actually was not the right fit. The horse was not being worked in a forward enough fashion and was not Cantering under saddle. SO many frustrations were happening I was totally overwhelmed and questioning my own horse knowledge especially when it come to TB's breed for racing such as Candi.
I watched the horse take a serious backslide over a 2 month period when I went to work and stopped being the primary rider. The trainer became scared and totally held the horse back.
So that trainer is no longer working with Candi. It was the best thing for her.
She is now working with the H/J trainer at my barn and her assistant who you will see riding her.
SHe is seeming to love her new work routine and is in full training with them. She loves trot poles and being allowed to work in a forward fashion as well as some cantering! :)
Here are some pictures from today. I will take more tomorrow and post them here.
