    Seat into Legs into Hands to Soften. Ask Margaret, she will know exactly what I am talking about. And definitely ask Dorothy this weekend, she is the one who taught me that when Nelson and I were blasting through fences.

    Works like a charm, because it is Dressage.

    The trot is your friend ! Practice trotting small circles where you ride towards the fence then circle away from it. Remember don't look at the fence, bc that tells your horse you want them to go to it & you don't !

    Also a great exercise for just all around control of their stride is to set up a 4 stride line & practice getting 5 strides, 6 strides, 4 strides. Trotting in & cantering out, cantering in & trotting out, trotting in & halting, cantering in & halting. As many combinations as you can think of =]

    I'll definitely ask Dorothy- I'll probably have a lesson Wednesday... do you think Margaret will laugh at me? =/
    You know how she is... I feel so.... well, frankly, dumb.... around her sometimes, that I'm scared to ask a question like that. XD

    Green Broke
    I had a similar issue. I didn't read all the post so forgive me.

    My mare started rushing EVERYTHING and freaking out when I wouldn't let her jump and there were jumps in the arena. I went back to basics for about a month and just started doing 18" again. She has been perfect this time around. I figured out that it was probably because she was undermuscled and felt that she needed to go faster to power over them. And, she's a TB and just needed a bit of a mental break. She's quite flighty.

    I longe her every time I ride and do a nice long warmup. Give that a try! If that doesn't work, then I would suggest going back to basics for a while.
