Mares in heat

I have this one mare and when she goes into heat she turns into a brat. She'll buck,kick ( not at people but if you walk behind her on a horse she kicks),when I saddle her she lie down with the saddle on. So I stick to ground work and avoid riding her till her attitude is better. Just want to know how other people deal with this and is their something else I could do to tone her attitude down. P.S she's the sweetest most well behaved horse when she's not in heat and well disciplined.

Hmm?? Lay down with the saddle ? Sounds like she is having some pain issues with that.
The kicking is just bad , naughty . The kicking at the horses, is just her showing dominance to them, like she would to a stud when she was not ready to breed. I don't know what to suggest to stop her behaviour.

My mare is the worst horse I have ever met when she is in heat.The last trail ride we went on, shespent the whole time with her ears pinned whenever another horse came within 20 feet of her. She picks one gelding she is in love with, and hates every other horse on the planet. She is the biggest hussy ever with that gelding. Mare magic is amazing. It makes her tolerable when she is in heat.

Valarian root Chills all horses out. My Friend uses it for mares in heat and it levels them out. My mare can go from good trail horse to miss "you-cant-tell-me-what-to-do :P" in less than a day but she only has 1 heat like that a year.
