I rode Gigi first and she was great, I took her to the fancy dressage barn for a lesson on Friday (where she of course decided to act like a redhead) and we continued to work on things from that.

Monday I rode her again (no pictures:( this time) and tried sprinklerbandits kk bit on her. She has been fussy and I just wanted to try a few things. The main thing I need to try is getting her teeth done. Anyways she seemed to really like it to start and then she didn't seem to like it, lots of fit throwing. Between fits she again jumped quite well. Sprinklerbandit and I were discussing Miss Priss and came to the conclusion that the beautiful bridle I've had on her the last few rides (also sprinklerbandit's) may be causing some of the strange head issues. She usually goes in a figure 8 which eliminates pressure along many of her teeth where as the crank (which is well padded and not that tight) goes right over the top of them. So if she is already having teeth issues the crank isn't helping. Back to the figure 8 it is, until the vet comes and floats her teeth.
Thanks to the amazing Alyssa for all the amazing pictures!
