I rode Jynx today and she was a DOLL. I swear I almost teared up again, it finally feels like my Jynxy is back! We rode Western, on a loose rein, and I had absolutely zero problems. Granted, I really wasn't asking her for anything, just moseying around the field in most straight lines or HUUUUGE looping circles and serpentine's at the trot with no resistance and total relaxation. Right back to her easy Western jog. She also didn't care a WIT if Justus was at the other end of the field and practically out of sight.
We even did a little canter on the straight away and *GASP*, she CHOSE her left lead! That hasn't happened in over 6 months! Beautiful, easy, relaxed lope through the field, and didn't change tempo at all when we loped right past Justus.
I only rode for half an hour, kept it light and simple and spent the next hour shampooing her legs and tail in a desperate attempt to battle the mud. She looks RIDICULOUS now, I got a pic on my phone, I'll post it in a bit, she's like a reverse bay now, hahahaha.
She was just telling me "MOM, I CAN'T TAKE THIS PLACE ANYMORE, WE NEED TO MOVE!"
I hope God tells her to smash her computer with a sledgehammer.
