I am not 100% sure where this magical turn around is coming from, but I am NOT complaining! I know the side reins help a lot, but I warm her up without them and she's still not pulling or leaning. She is as calm, and happy and relaxed as any horse I've ever seen on a lunge line which is a complete first. I swear I felt close to tears today with such progress - I asked for the canter and got a BEAUTIFUL, easy, calm canter. For anyone keeping track, cantering Jynx on the lunge line has been a "not a hope in hell" thing since I pretty much bought her. She CAREENS like a demon at the end of the line, drags me across the field, fights me tooth and nail and basically just acts like I'm trying to kill her or a ghost is on her heels.
I think we're all just SO much more relaxed and happy at the new barn, it's unbelievable. Enjoy some pics of Jynxy's progress!
Walking, doesn't she just LOOK so much happier?
I like this shot
*giggles* Have to love that wacky mane
Can't get over how relaxed and easy she was, absolutely no bolting or racing, just happy!
Hehe that eye always makes her look half crazed
Square halt! She looks like a dorkus in this shot.
Standing so pretty!
