And HITS, with the lack of going forward thing, is it possible she's just bored with all the ring work this summer and maybe a tiny bit sour? Would taking her cross country and getting her blood pumping help walk her up a bit.
The thought has definitely crossed my mind Maura! Which is why we're going cross country schooling in a couple weeks, and then the fall hunter paces will get started and we'll be attending those too! But we do a lot of cooling down on the trails at my barn too, to keep things different...but they're not all that exciting in the way of trails. I think Sandie may need taken off property more and ridden on some new trails, she does definitely get bored/sour with just ring work so that is very well a possibility.
