Dommycob, I'm willing to bet this mare doesn't care for jumping and that she's only doing as she's told (half heartedly obviously). She complaining that the mare lopes. This mare is BRED and TRAINED to lope, of course she's going to continue to do what is natural to her. They aren't bred nor built for the animated, quick movement like a jumper would be. A horse bred for pleasure is going to have a flat, slow gait. I'm sure it's possible for her to jump, but it's going to take training and this mare is probably never going to put her heart into jumping.
