    So, she finally got over the whole "You asked me to lope, and now you want me to walk? HA! I'm going to be a tard and bounce around!" stuff!!! YAY for progress!

    I had to open her up in a field today to cut off some cows we were bringing home, and she went right back down into a lope and then a trot and then a loose reined walk! SQUEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!

    Now just to get that lope down...

    Went for a bareback ride in the snow today. I also tried a diffrent bit - a Jr. Cowhorse with a chain mouth. I still think she likes her roller mouthpiece more!

    Did a lot of stopping/backing from my seat and legs and lateral flexion at a walk.


    Oh, I also realized how

    So. My dirt has finally cleared up enough for me to ride safely in it so Squiggy got to go for a ride!

    She now does a jog that she just started doing, I believe it's a sort of "sitting trot" or something. She does it with her head almost level too!

    And then it came time to kick that trot up a bit. It took a few half halts until she started to relax, and then tried to get her to reach into contact. And do you think I could make it happen? Nope. So, we walked the barrel pattern a few times and I tried again. This time, I remembered people saying to have an elastic contact for her to reach into. So, I super exaggerated it from my elbows to fingers, and she actually lifted her back and got on the bit! SQUEEEE!

    So, I asked for a lope and it didn't take long for me to exaggerate the elastic contact again and she was DOING THE EXACT SAME THING. Even her neck was nice and rounded and she loped with a nice, even rhythm.

    It felt like I was riding one of those big dressage horses.

    Your wanting imput? You haven't asked a question. I don't know much about barrel racing , so can't say much.

    Did you find a suitable English saddle?

    There's a MW HDR C/C that I can get for $400. I think a MW would fit her just as long as the panels are flatter. And if not, I have several other horses that I know for sure a MW would fit. I just gotta find a day off that I can drive and look at it and hopefully pick it up :/

    I've been scouring the country for Wintec's, and all I'm finding are the AP's that I don't like!

    I had this Crosby jump saddle that I was selling for a friend, but she decided not to sell it cheap like she originally planned to. It was a medium tree but fit Mac decently and he's pretty wide int eh withers.

    I don't like wintecs at all, but that's just me.

    Do you have a photo of this other one you hope to get?
