She knows how to relax in the arena...I can put my hand down and she goes wherever I point her with my seat, voice, and legs. I guess that's why it's hard for me to understand why the trails are so hard for her to get.
I don't think the hills would sour her....I mean, we aren't going to do it all day, but the way I see if she's not going to try and kill me if I'm making her work since obviously she's taken it upon herself to make the trails a difficult place to be even though I've been trying to make it her "calm place" by working hard at the arena and then trying to let her walk calmly on the trials but she just doesn't go for it. And like I said earlier, when I am moving her around and stuff and making her work she's not bad....I don't know, maybe it's right just to leave her be on it. I still have Rebel to take me out on trails and he's a phenomenal trail horse.
