Jynxy...lunges? YAY!

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?


So sweet

*giggles* Have to love that wacky mane


More canter


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


Streeetch down!


Square halt! She looks like a dorkus in this shot.


Standing so pretty!

Awesome!

So in lies the madness, the pursuit of the impossible in the face of the complete assurance that you will fail, and yet still you chase.

Maybe that dressage lesson helped more then you thought!

Haha, my trainer/coach says Jynx reminds her of a little sporthorse, she thinks she's built rather well for a Paint, likes her shoulder. I know she'll never be spectacular, but nice to know she has a build that isn't going to make her struggle doing some more athletic things!

The plan is to attend the same show that Jynxy debuted in last October, so we'll be able to put the tests side by side and see the progress of a year's time with 6 months work of training/lessons!

Way to go Jynx! I think she is just darling, MM, have to fight the urge to want to scratch that fabulous butt of hers! Sounds like you are making great progress. Congrats!

Just for fun, THIS is what I dragged home 2 years ago! I'm so glad I've documented this journey, it's fun to see how far she's come!



And now:


I'd say not a half bad investment of my time, money and energy!
