Ok, so my mare is really smart. Too smart for her own good sometimes. And she just gets really bored and frusterated when I school her over the same thing when she isn't getting the hang of it. And she kinda blows up.
She gets all hot and worked up. And can't focus.
Currently, I'm working on her jumping. I need to get her tuned by the end of this month for a big show. She's been doing awesome the past few weeks, but the past couple days weren't as great. She did a few small one's great, but I try and take her over the bigger ones (as in like a little under 3 feet.), and she kinda flips out. She has had no problem before. But now she's leaping over them, or more like lunging her self over, very hard btw. And then I'll bring her around and she'll leap sideways and try and bolt at the last second. But not always, it's completely random and I believe it's because she's bored.
But I have no idea what's been going on with her lately.. Any thoughts are appriciated.
