Maybe she was just off. You know those days when you just don't feel right.

I jump once a week at most, not counting stuff we have to hop over on trail rides. And I hang out with her a lot, in the pasture and outside. I bring her out just to graze sometimes, especially if the grass in the pasture isn't growing well.
I accounted the first couple days to being "off" but weeks of being "off" seems a bit much..

maybe..it is time you encourage yourself and ur horse to go further,

maybe do ground work, hand grazing, even if ur not doing the same thing day by day a horse may know how to do this and that, and need or want to go further, as they already "know " it

horses dont go out of their way to be naughty..generally their is a reason, whether it is pain, discomfort, bordom

I DO those things. I do all kinds of things with her, I teach her things that I know how to teach. I know she is not out to make me mad.
Edit: Also, if you didn't read my previous posts, I CANNOT go much further. I don't know how to teach her much more and I have learned almost all I can learn by reading/watching videos.

Today was a lot better, she was very very hard to keep calm, but only because she was excited to be out and working again. So I am happy for that.
