When I first got my horse, he would stop dead if I got the least bit off balance. Just the least shift in my weight would cause him to stop. Maybe she just thinks she's looking out for you?

She stops for everyone. It doesn't matter who's riding. I'm the most experienced person to ride her so far, so it could definitely be because of balance or shifting my weight. I hope to work her again tomorrow, so we'll see how it goes...

Any pictures of you riding her ?

No, I haven't had the chance to get any yet. I'll have to do that tomorrow. Hopefully I have time to ride her after work tomorrow =\

Good. I have a feeling on what I will see but rather wait and see what you post.

A video would be good to but at least a picture.

Should I take the pictures riding bareback or with a saddle?

Prefer saddle and in motion if you can.

I didn't get to ride yesterday, so there are no pictures or videos. I'll get them up as soon as I get the chance.

Be glad all she does is stop! When I first started training one of my horses she would get so mad and lazy that after I stopped her when I asked her to go forward she would just back the entire length of the arena she was never fast about it just back at a slow pace lol thank god we cured that!

- this new horse just may thnk its time for you t get off and she's saying 'i'm done' if you can sense she's about to do it I would give her a little pressure right before she's about to. Or if you say she's doing it in the same spot prepare yourself right before you get there and give her some leg. I don't think you would be off balance in exactly the same spot she stops in every time unless the grounds uneven and she's stopping because she's off balance.
