I just relized how much me and chance have really accomplished!! From the begining to the end.
In the begining
I couldnt ride her at all unless in the indoor or drive way even then it was hard!
She use to buck and rear everyfew strides
She use to throw her head and refuse to turn swing her body around and thrash around.
If broughtover a jump she would freak out buck and bolt
If I lunged her she would pin her ears buck and twist and try and strike out at me.
She use to be very in my space and pushy.
Use to always have to pull on her to keep her at a trot or even a walk
NOW after just about 3-4 weeks of working with her everyday!
I can now ride her in the arena for an hour or so.
I can now bring her over jumps at a trot and she lands in a trot!
We can go for an hour and a half trail ride!
We are doing dressage starting on cross country and doing some hunter jumping now!
She isnt really playing with the bit anymore not really throwing her head
Absolutly no bucking yes I got 1 rear maybe a inch off the ground when I wouldnt ride her into the barn :P
She can now stop and she usually stays put for a good 10 seconds! We are still working on it usualy if I tried to stop her she would rear.
Once her foot heals up and we can start working normaly again we are going to start working on cantering.
I can ride with 3 other horses and she listens to my comands and tried to ignore the other horses.
I can lunge her with out much of a fuss
I can even ride her with just a halter!!! And a lead rope!!
I mean we still have our downs but lately its been a lot of ups! Im really excited to work with her and ride and I use to dread the fact of riding her.
Sorry but today I was thinking of it and im just so impressed! I turned my horse around! And I didnt even think I could do it!
Now things to work on
Slowing down her trot [in progress]
Letting me mount with out moving. Around [in progress]
Making her less spooky in the drive way.
Picking up her feet [in progess]
Using her hind more then her front and picking up her back feet while trotting [inprogess]
Maybe some of you might be like ya right :P Wouldnt suprised me but Im going to get videos! I will lol
--gives everyone a big huge brownie--
