When I started focusing on steering all over the place (in an arena or field) with no set pattern at the long trot he suppled up really nicely and it transitioned to the canter.
    I'll take her back to a trot & work her. I thought we were ready for the lope, but apparently not. My friends have pretty much told me the same thing -more riding, more practice. Sometimes though you just need to hear from someone else.

    Just an update. I tried nose to knee when we started today. It seemed to put her in the right frame of mind. We didn't go faster than a trot, lots of bending, direction changes, figure eights, and zig zags. Got some fairly tight turns our of her.

    That's great to hear. Keep working at it. You will know when she is ready for loping because she will be consistant at the trot. You can always try loping, see how it goes and go back to trotting.

    Good luck and have fun!!
