Going to start showing nova this years in training level possibly play around in 1st. We went through intro level last year which she did well in.. scored mid 60's in intro C... She thinks if I keep going the road I'm going with her we should do well. I just need to bring up her poll a bit, and ride more forward..which normally I do, I think I held back in the clinic because I was nervous haha but I've been doing so much long and low with Nova cause of how when I first got her she was so bracey and stiff.. and now that's where she's comfortable.. so were going to start working on bringing her up again and strengthen her neck. As well as switching her bit to a neule shule [sp?] Starter bit. She has such a low pallet, and fat tounge so a normal french link snaffle just isnt comfortable for her.
She also told me that Nova is deffinately a tricky ride because she's so sensative especially through her mouth, she quickly switches from to much contact to to little, whch is why she thinks switching bits should help there. As well a nova tries to always be a step a head of you, and assume what we are doing. So you kinda gotta always be on her and not allow her to take over.
Heres a video short clip.
