Discussed the observation with my instructor, she said she was switching leads and that we are going to work next time with my pushing her up a little with my hips, should be fun since I have a bad back with some limited mobility, but it's a challenge right?? I haven't loped very many times and it does scare me to a certain degree, I'm still getting my confidence level up so that is a factor. We will be working on body position as well and correcting the horse when she falls out of a lead - I can see lots of stopping and starting here. I give the lady who owns the horse the suggestion about the Chiro and what she does with it is on her head and not mine. This horse had a really really nasty cut on her off side hip this spring, required over 25 stitches, luckily it missed anything vital and important to movement so that is a plus. So thanks again.
