The DOR has no video of me when I am crow hopping, but she found one that shows what I do. Here is a link to another video that is probably closer to what I look like when I do my jumping car imitation.
I am not doing it to be bad, I just get so excited that I don't know what to do with all of that energy and it squeaks out. I am very good and stop as soon as the DOR tells me, but the truth is I really just want to hit the gas and run as fast as I can.
The DOR has been working with me at liberty in the round pen and that is fun. She will let me run as fast as I want, both directions, for a bit. I am pretty fast and it is fun to get to rip it up! I have to learn to collect myself and control my feet without a rider before I can canter well with a rider on. I just get so darn excited I forget to pay attention to what I am doing with my feet-I look like Scooby Doo when he is trying to skedaddle.
I do get a bit upset in the round pen because the baby can't come with me. She stands at the fence and screams for me, that makes me upset a bit. If the baby starts running and bucking I will do the same...then I get in a bit of trouble. The DOR says she doesn't care what the baby is doing, I have to pay attention and behave-wll imagine that.
Enjoy your day and don't forget to hug your DOR

Star is a crow hopper as well, when she wants to put on the gas and I say no.

I also love me some scooby doo!

That looks so familiar! My Brandy does that while loping as well, especially if she feels uncomfortable or slips/stumbles, than she starts to crowhop, like it's my fault! But she is easy to get back under control.
