    She looks soooo uptight. You are 100% positive that everything fits her?

    Maybe some carrot stretches would help her.

    Sky, while I have not been around Paso Finos, I have trained a Pervuian Paso, that is how they are, it's called "Brio", it's a good thing.

    OP....you mentioned that when things get better for you financially you are going to get a chiro for her. If she is hurting that could account for part of her attitude. If she hurts continuing to ride her will not cure any problem. She will simply continue to hurt. I am certainly no expert by any means but I do know how fussy they can be when they hurt and they can't tell us, except by their behavior. If you can possibly have her checked at least you would know if she needs treatment or she really is just pissy.
    A number of years ago a chiro and saddle fitting helped solve a lot of problems I was having with my mare...interestingly and lovingly called Pissy Missy.
    Good luck to both of you.

    The interesting thing about her is that she is just fine on trails, its once you ask her to collect or if you are in an arena. I'll actually have a lot of debt cleared in the next few days and am starting a new job soon. While the vet didn't find anything specifically I'm going to have a chiropractor come out soon. She is not being ridden in the mean time except for a few trail rides (I am out of state. My trainer is riding her on trails and said she is doing great with those as she usually does).

    The chiropractor I'm going to use is very good at what she does and requires you to have 3 visits scheduled so she can do follow ups. If things continue how they are I'll be scheduling regular chiropractic appointments.

    The critters sure can be a puzzle at times.
    Often I think if we didn't run into horses with issues we wouldn't learn as much as we do. We have to educate ourselves to make them better...my experience anyway. Ongoing education program on 4 feet. : )

    You've got a sore backed horse. Pain is causing the "attitude."

    First probable cause: rider position. You've got you butt back on the cantle and your feet on the dashboard. This puts 70-80% of your body weight on the back two points of the saddle, vice distributed over the bars.

    Second probable cause is saddle fit. I say this because ill fitting saddles are found on 80% +++ of horses regardless of breed or type. If the saddle fits poorly it grossly increases the pain the horse is feeling.

    Get a riding coach first and correct your seat. Fix the saddle fit as required. These should put you on the road to success. If the vet did not find anything (and they are a competent vet) then calling a chiro is wasting money because there is nothing to fix.

    Good luck in your program.

    I'd like to add that it doesn't look like the saddle fits you either. Your knees are far from the knee rolls, and the whole thing seems to be pushing you into a chair seat, or at least to the back of the saddle. Is this your own saddle? Have you tried others?
