Update on Jog
i've been working really hard to slow down my horse, when i got her she was a gamer and i've had her for over a year and a is our progress with the jog. what do you guys think? sorry i didnt have my western saddle, i'm cleaning it for the shows, its a little dirty haha.

Don't know what she looked like before, but you've definitely got a nice little jog there. It could be slower, but IMHO I think it works fine. Nice job.

heres after several months of having her:

a few months before that video ^

Her cadence is off by trying to slow her down instead of getting her "up". And she's heavy on the forehand. Just pick your hands up and squeeze your legs to get her to drive her rear end up under her and get her to collect. Don't worry about "slow", focus on correct in the body, the rest will follow.

I think she looks great; nice and active, and impulsive from behind...not something you see in WP horses that often...I think they've been slowed down WAY too much that it's un-natural, and lacks any real impulsion and engagement. If she were in a WP class that I was judging, she would be placed higher than a horse that's just 'slow'...she looks relaxed and natural, and a pleasure to be on...that was the original intent of pleasure classes in the first place; it wasn't emphasized on slow gaits, but an obedient horse that was a pleasure to ride, and had an easy stride to sit.

Thanks :] it's really awesome to hear she's doing well, because i don't ride with other people often and i've trained her all myself, with the exception of a little help of my BO and some lessons, she does really well in the shows last year so hopefully we do just as well :]
