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.

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)
