She usually is very placid which is why I am concerned. Her unusual behaviour ranged from the very mild, backing up and refusing to move on, to the more dangerous, kicking out and rearing. She was ridden by my daughter's instructor, as my daughter got quite frightened, and she put up quite a fight. I was amazed she could find that much energy!
My daughter rode her again yesterday and she was much better - only a little bit of resistance, and a bit of head tossing. And there was no nasal discharge yesterday either. We couldn't locate any sore spots and she pulled up remarkably well after her little episode on Saturday. Maybe she is just going through a bad patch but it is not good that she is behaving this way. We are arranging for the dentist to come out just to make sure there are no issues there, but otherwise we will keep looking.
Thanks for your help!
