She is not lame, as stated more than once she was on a short line so obviously her range of movement is limited. As for the head bobbing its something she has always done. She carries her head very high and has never learned to yield to pressure in the bit or at all for that matter so the idea of keeping her head low or bending at the pole is a really foreign concept to her so the bobbing is normal.....for now.
Free lounging something we have done and she does pretty well, the person I am learning from saw no harm in me trying it on the line so I am just starting to feel my way around and learn right and wrong. I by no means expected to be perfect right away, but we will get there and I am lucky to have a pretty tolerant horse (:
