    I assume the kissing issue is from the last trainer letting her run all over the place. If I can get her to lope without it, don't need to kiss. I tell her lope with a squeeze of my inside leg and a rock of my hips.

    The spiraling to get her to slow down doesn't work. She can run tight circles very fast and would kill herself before she slowed down before. We have a long way to go, but she can actually lope now. I think she needed to figure out it was okay to just relax a bit

    This is when you PULL on her to get her to break down to a trot. This horse is taking you for a ride.

    Done it, she didn't get the picture. She would trot, as soon as I asked for a lope it would be back to mach nine. I found a way that works for her. Different approach to different horses.
