Well I finally got chances trot nice and slow very comfortable to sit even bareback lol.
Now we've moved up to a canter and its soo speedy almost a gallop! When we canter jumps I barely have time to get into position! We were jumping about 2ft7in and the first time it was great! She used her hind nicely! But the second time cantering over it I ended up basicly going on a neck ride!
So Im going to lay off the jumping till I can get a nice collected canter! That I can jump with her easily with out getting nervous she's going to gallop after!
I don't lunge her anymore because that gets her to tired before we ride.
The way I got her to slow down her trot I would pull bac release pull back release. Worked wonders if I pulled back when I sat and released when I rised!
Do you think that might work??? Any other ideas??
I've tried doing the spiraling circles to get her slow down but she rushes that sometimes aswell.
I really want to canter her over the jumps but its kinda dangerous for me because I can't quite get balenced before we go over. So I've just been trotting her over the 2ft + jumps which even then she ends up cantering 3 strides before.
So im going to lay off the jumps and work on flat work and her canter but I need help from you guys!
Thanks so much! *gives everyone a thank you balloon!*
