I have had her since last june and she was a dream to a 14 year old girl ;P
She has been great until 3 months ago or so I baught a western saddle (she normally goes english) and just rode in the western saddle but steerd english. Red started to buck in the saddle so I got rid of it thinking that sh didnt like the weight and maybe it did pinch her. So I went back to riding english and ever since than when ever I ride her she's ok at walk and trot until I as her ot do somehting at the trot than she starts throwing her head and stomping and kicking out. She's still sweet as can be on the ground. I used to be able to get on and kick her into a canter and now she acts like she wants to go and I kick her to go and she pins her heads and threatens to buck.
I tested my saddle and all my tack by trying a new saddle and girth and riding in a haltor and a pair of clip on reins and she wasnt very much more behaved. Her back is not sore after we get done riding and she has had no problems with anything on her body (hoofs,legs, etc)
I am VERY scared and miss the old mare I used to have, she's starting to scare me and I don't want to give her back...i love her very much PLEASE help!!
