ive been thinking about my little mare and how she doesn't just measure up to the big moving horses. i thought about how riders with big moving paces can just think about their test, flexion, regularity etc. whereas i have to also think about influencing her movement,and trying to get the medium paces also. that makes it much harder.

Thanks so much for that Jess!  She is a real sweetie. I also have her brother, who is further behind in his training. He's 5 next week. But.... I have just found out that I can leave him 3 weeks and just get on and ride, with no silliness. So that was really cool! His 'big' issue is that he's a real licker! Licks me constantly- more after I ride. He has salt etc, so I don't think that's it. I was thinking maybe he likes my soap?  So my hard part is trying to convince my husband I don't need to sell either! I bred him for my daughter, who moved away, and I do feel he's the better moving horse (not that I ever tell Delphi that!).  Thanks again.

Don't know if I wish to sell her though. I bred her and have done everything with her- starting, showing etc. She is improving. Some are slower to develop the strength over their back I believe. Thanks for your ideas Jess
