I think she's really ticklish and sensitive maybe, because if you barely touch her she'll quiver and look at you lol. That's why I had the vet called out because I thought she was sore but he said she was fine is it possible that he didn't pick up on something. I plan on getting a chiro out this spring, for an alignment i'll have them look into that too though
    You are on the right track then. Sounds like she just needs time and patience. If she quivers everytime you touch her she might just need some more desensitising.. just stand and run your hands all over her for a bit and see how she does. Just keep on rubbin when she gets cranky or fidgets and leave her alone when she stands and her expression changes or she relaxes. Some horses are just really sensitive, just give her some time and keep rubbin your hands all over her body. I am glad you are looking into a chiro, lots of people don't believe in it. Good for you and good luck!

    Haha Thanks! My dad thinks the whole idea of a chiro is stupid, so i'm going to pay for it myself, but oh well. He thinks that if a horse doesn't have it in the wild they don't need it. Pshhh

    Hunter doesnt like to be groomed or petted. Always biting the cross ties, ears back etc. Although he does seem to be getting better with it. He loves a good bum scratch after a workout though lol
