Pin what on you? Didn't you hear me say to Spyder that I was wrong that I misread your post, and it wasn't about collection. Defensive again.
Also if I have to I can take some screen shots, there is SOME change in her back. Was she still hollow? Yes.. but there was some change.
And I said, I
did not see any changes....never said there wasn't but you said that she "stopped" being hollow (exact words), and in which case no she did not stop hollowing, she still was
Spyder, don't have a magnifying glass, can't see details on a picture barely the size of a quarter
And if you are saying Spyder that her horse isn't "hollow" then she either is swayed, but from other pictures that I've seen it does not appear to be like that, or she's extremely butt high....either way it's not good for the horse.
And that might be your saddle problem and the reason she hollows alot (according to you) while riding. If she is build downhill, or on the forehand, it makes the saddle slide forward...in which case a crooper will cover up the problem but that means you have to use it every single time until she learns how to bring her forehand up. I, like SpiritHorse, recommend the Theraflex Pad...to use shims in the front to build up so the saddle isn't downhill. You yourself will find a more comfortable position also and Chance will have the freedom and range to physically be able to bring her back and forehand up, which I don't see how she can do with that saddle on as it's right on her scapula
