Today I am not requesting help for Cowboy, but instead Diamond.
First of all, please ignore the tack choices. Yes, I am riding in a barrel saddle. At the moment, it is the only saddle we have that fits her properly. My Close-Contact only fits my OTTB, Cowboy. Please critique as if I were riding her HUS (Hunter Under Saddle).
I am essentially posting because I know there is something wrong, but I can't pinpoint it. This is Diamond at her WORST. This is as naughty and bad as she gets. When we trailer her anywhere, she is an angel. The head-tossing, trying to hollow out and run, prancey-ness, is all eliminated when I trailer her out to ride in any arena. The issues you see here only happen at home, where I don't have the option of a sand arena.
That said, I would like to make it so that she behaved EVERYWHERE. I'm just at a loss to how to get her to do that. I'm not trying to have the most beautiful equitation in this video, I'm trying to get her to ride like a sane horse
Though if my equitation is inhibiting her, please let me know.
Without further ado! Thanks in advance! Remember, critique as if she was riding in Hunters.
Diamond is for sale/lease if anyone would be interested.
