    Nova has learned to lunge!

    Yay! Accomplishments! Haha

    She can now lunge w/t easily both ways! Still working on the canter, she gets a little iffy at the canter.. maybe since she's still a bit unbalenced. This so awesome because when I first started working on lunging all she would do is shoot backwards or rear up.. so YAY!!!! she's such quick learner... its just about being clear about what you want.

    Heres a picture!

    She still looks really unbalanced to me. I would work on the flat getting her balanced and supple and out of that weird tense inverted shape she seems to favor. Lunging in loose stretchy side reins to get her to maybe learn how to go long and low would be good too. I personally wouldn't even be jumping that horse over 12" crossrails until I had the flat work solid.

    Suprisingly, she's not AS bad as she was when I first got her.. but she still has ways to go.

    I've been working A LOT on her introvertedness and its getting better but my lord she doesnt want to give it up. The vet checked her out and its not physical she's completely sound and happy.

    Ahhh, don't worry too much about her aloof nature; she will come around, or she will always be that way.

    I have a filly who is quite aloof herself, and I know for a fact she's never been abused, or neglected. She's just that way...prefers attention (especially if it means work), on her terms...Lol!

    My mare, and the colt, are opposite though; Now Flicka only likes attention from me as a general rule, but she's sweet as honey, and extremely gentle even if she's 'iffy' about someone else. No one else can walk up to her in her corral though, even if she comes up to the fence with someone outside the fence.

    Blue, on the other hand is a complete Mooosh...He loves attention from anyone, at any time, and shows his clear enthusiasm by running, bucking and rearing around his corral as you're walking up...then he comes trotting up to you, and stops and breathes in your face! Bwahaha!!

    I think they mean inverted as in her neck is on upside down (it curves toward the ground instead of the sky). It makes her back hollow out and her hindquarters trail out behind.

    Yeah, you can tell she was never properly trained to collect, her neck has zero muscle and that dip right in front of the withers.

    But she's good to jump a course in a show though, right?

    ON LUNGE she's iffy about the canter. When riding she has no problems at all and would rather canter then trot actually ;)
