It's the same for yellow mare in that she doesn't do it unless we have jogged or loped first. And the more responses I read the more likely it's due to inconsistency on my part as well. I'm on crutches again for the second time in a year. Last year I got maybe 30 rides in. I was allowed to ride, then I wasn't. Then allowed again, and then not. Frustrating for both of us. And because I never get to ride my horses I forgot about another thing I tried this year that worked. I totally ignored what she was trying to do and keep my body at a walk. She's so smooth and such a great mover that it's hard not to just ride the jig because it's not a rough prance thing, rather a slow jog, so I had to really think about what my body was doing. It took a few rides but she got better, as did I. Hot horses are so much fun aren't they? When you put my mare into an arena or you ask her to move cattle you'd never think she was hot. She knows and loves her job and she works so nice. But when she doesnt have a job she just wants to GO.
