I have a Arab/Saddlebred mare that I want to turn into a Hunter and EQ horse along with Jumpers. We have been doing lessons and she has been on her hindquarters and collected! YAY!
Anyways, her pace is getting slower the more I work with her, but our main problem is that when we are approaching a jump (even 18") she throws her head up and launches full speed to the jump, so I have to do a ton of circles before and even then she rushes them, mildly. What does a good EQ horse need to have?
