After watching the second video, I would bet money that your mare is lame in the front. Probably explains her reluctance to keep moving, and her stumbling in the lope. I would have her checked out.

Interesting...I'd be interested to see if anyone else shares this opinion. I'm not sure if I actually see it or if I'm just fooling myself into thinking I see it. Lol

Your right! I rewatched the video and I see it also.. Also Kylie- looked on your youtube account and found another video of Jackie, she seems to be a bit stiff on that one also.

Hm. I honestly don't think she's sore or lame at all. She's had the same kind of movement since day 1, and I haven't noticed anything.
And I think the couple stumbles there when she was loping were because of balance issues. Today was the first time I ever got her to do more than one circle in a lope without breaking into a trot - she's only 3, so she's probably growing into herself, she grew a lot over the winter.

I don't see any lameness but the video is not that great of quality for me to pick on anything like that. Reason why I like a dressage whip, it reinforces calf pressure so it hopefully never has to elevate to a big over & under with the reins but that worked for sure! She is forward moving for you in the second video, and she got the message with one pop, she's a smart cookie. By the way, artist & song in your first video, who & what is playing? Thanks!

Truthfully, I don't see lameness in the video. What it looks like to me is a young, unbalanced horse being ridden in ground that is a bit deep and she's having some trouble finding her feet.

With a movement as subtle as that one, I would really want to lay hands on the horse, watch her move in person, and maybe even ride her before I made judgements on soundness. Some horses do just move funky and I've known 2 that you would swear were lame just from watching them at times...but they weren't, they just had a strange movement.

As for the original video . Gotta love it when they finally realize that you aren't playing around . Looks like you're making headway with her, she may make a nice horse yet.

If you call that blowing up at her... well then. The walk she had was as fast as she wanted to go after a squeeze, clucks and a kick, so I went to my last option, and it worked perfectly.

Nice video and the horse is now going forward freely. Congratulations. I too like a good gas peddle. Couldnt see the first vid from my iPad so can't comment on that.
