I agree. After a couple days of research I beleive it to be related to the smell of the strange little ponies and fear. Possibly some previous experience which was unfavorable for her.
I will never take her back there again.
If I did...
It would be my lip curliing up from the previous trauma!!!

That's what I reckon as well, got to be a stallion!

Being around boys can make a mare "feel good" if there is a stud any where around rayne pretty much goes right into heat!. I just ignore her and keep on about my business with her. No I do not let tham get close. That's part of the joy of owning a mare...

Well, not to rule the possibility of a "stallion" in the bunch being the root of her evil at that time. But , if she were indeed in heat, she may have been a bit sensitive and prehaps that could have been a possible flight response to a bunch of shaggy little monsters? Just a thought.

Also , I would like to add has anyone here used a marble? If you have do you feel this subdues mareish behavior?

Had she seen minis before? I know alot of horses that see a mini for the first time and seem to say "What the heck is wrong with that?!" and get weirded out. If there were whole bunch of fuzzy little mutant creatures running up to her, it must have just magnified the fear. I'd suggest just taking her by them again? Maybe on a lunge line. That way if she runs you have slack to give her without being drug (or is it dragged?). You could also work her on the lunge line near them if there's room. It could get her mind off them a bit. You could start some distance from them and then push her closer without stopping. Lunging near a scary object (or in this case a fuzzy creature) has always helped my horses.
I hope I helped!

My opinion is that her acting out has nothing at all to do with the fact that she is in heat, at least it shouldn't be. Have you ever let her get away with other stuff when she has been in heat. My mares act exactly the same if they are in heat of if they are not. I expect my horses to be on their best behaviour and won't let them get away with anything when they are in heat. I can ride my mares right beside my stallion while they are in heat and both horses are on their best behaviour. If you train a mare right they will never get "Moody", that is my opinion though.

I have miniatures. I've seen MANY a full size horse (geldings, mares, doens't matter) totally freak out over the sight of my minis. My own TBs did long before I had minis. Just something about the little guys! LOL ;)

Actually I would expose her to all the strange things that you can! This will acclimate her to ..ummm life
