Thanks! What sort of retraining would I have to do with her? I only ride her within the yard now so she's in familar place. And for short amounts of time.
She was a brood mare until she was 10 then was sold on and broken in she then went to a riding school but they couldn't get the bridle on her easier and apparently the owner thought it would take around a year to get her ready to be part of the riding school so sold her on. It was at that point she came to the yard I was riding at. I was only told at that point that she was previously just a brood mare, so basically we both were really really green and have learnt together. (I'd only been riding for 6 months once a week at the point of buying her and that was hacking out on a sensible school horse)
