DUCHESS TOOK HER LEFT LEAD!!!!!
CrazyHorse(person on this forum) suggested that I try a trot pole, so I did and it WORKED!!! It took a couple trys, because she wouldnt automatically go into a lope over it, but when she did she took her left lead! I was so estatic!!! So now I just need to work on her balance on the left lead, she is really really unbalanced, which I figured since I have never really been able to lope her on the left lead. So my question is, Should I still go into the round pen to help her get more balanced? I think is what she is doing is that, she is not arcing(?) her body, I think she is throwing her butt out or hip whatever you want to say. So wouldnt the round pen be a good thing for her since she has to arc her body and go in a circle and it will help her balance?? Thank you guys for all your help and support and thank crazy horse for the idea!! I was going to try some other ideas suggested but crazy horse's was first on the list. So now any ideas on how to make her more balanced or is the round pen the best option?
