Question Could it be colic? or..?

Hi everyone,
So, I rode my horse 2 days ago, and she seemed...different...she felt fat, and felt like she was full of poo or gas...and I think it probably was poo because after my ride she actually did do a big poo, so im not sure whether that was the problem. But, then today I went and rode her and she seemed the same...lazy, plodding along, and whenever I squezzed her (especially from halt to walk and walk to trot, but trot to canter she was fine, although, she was cantering rather slow than usual) she felt like she was trying to squeeze out a poo and it felt like she was bloated or something... but, I don't think its colic because doesnt colic usually come right away, not take 3 or more days to get real colicy? But, she is perfectly happy though, she has her ears pricked forward most of the time, isnt showing any signs of why all of the sudden does she feel fat, bloated or full of poo whenever I ride her? Is she just trying to be naughty because she isnt used to being ridden this often (i only just bought her and she usually got ridden twice a week I think) so she is trying to get me not to ride her as often? Its scaring me now though, im scared she might be sick... does anyone have any ideas what it might be? Ill be riding her not tomorrow but the next day, so I will tell you if she is still the same then...
Thanks guys,
P.S please, don't act rude, im scared she might actually be sick...

I always say trust your gut instinct- either phone the vet for a consultation or get them out.

Good luck! Hope its just a scare and nothing major x
