    Anyways, have you had a chiropractor out? A massage therapist? I would drop your current vet and get a vet that won't rest until whatever is wrong is found.
    Have you done x-rays? Ultrasounds? Have you ruled out any digestive problems?
    Are you warming her up before riding? (Groundwork, lunging, etc to rule out just having a cold back?)
    Our vet is very good,, she isn't resting she has told us to try somethings and if they don't work she is going to book her up for xrays, yes we warm her up everytime we ride her. We don't jump her. We only do flat work, dressage and hacking. She's fine out hacking but when it comes to schooling she will not do it, we don't know if she is just being naughty (which she has never being like this in her life) or if she is in pain as she has to bend when she goes round the arena.

    What happens if you work her through this behavior? Have you tried? She could just be a bit snotty and sour from being off work and she doesn't want to return to work.

    Have you tried Bute or another anti-inflammatory for a few days while exercising her.

    I think I would try working her through it and seeing if she begins getting better or worse, and then go back for xrays, etc if she's really not improving.

    You said her owner has lost her confidence working the horse, are you a confident rider that can push the mare past her current attitude?

    Just throwing ideas at you. I hope you can get it figured out.

    Good idea! This way you could find out if it's behavior related or pain related. Good luck.

    I've tried working her through but it seems to make her worse until you feel like you cannot continue with her, the thing is I don't want to overdo pushing her that it hurts her that much that she is scarred with pain that's all in her mind, if you get my jist. We'll see if the vet agrees with giving her bute but if not then we can't do it "/. Thank you for taking your time to throw some ideas in though, its much appreciated. I'll keep in touch and post how she is doing every few days. X

    I know its been a long timee but coco is back into work, it turns out it was our farrier. He wasn't doing her feet right so this was causing her pain.
    She is now being brought back into dressage and even doing a bit of jumping :)

    Sounds like you need a chiro, her back maybe out. My horse did the same thing, his withers were swollen and back was out just from rolling wrong.
