Just because she was ridden by a larger person does not mean you are not too big for her.

PLEASE for her sake, find a trainer!

What does she do if you run your finger, pushing into the skin/muscle, down her back on either side of her spine?

And I really should didn't mean you were too heavy, just your height. I don't think you are big at all. I WISH I was still that thin. It does sound like pain in her back, if she's still acting up with you bareback.

wow really? You must have super long legs. Mine aren't that long on Hunter and he is even 14 hands (yet, still growing)

No, if I run my hand down her back, she doesn't react. I have pushed and pressed everywhere on her back, belly, sides. Nothing.

Yes, I do have very long legs. I like being tall, hehe.

As I asked earlier, could you be jabbing her in the sides or mouth when you get on?

Sorry I didn't answer you!!

I don't think I am jabbing her really. All I do is pull myself up into the saddle.

I still bet she needs a chiropractor and possibly a new saddle.
On a related note; pulling yourself into the saddle could be exacerbating the problem, can you use a mounting block? (after a chiro has seen her)
