Lately the horse I ride has started rearing. We believe the farrier unbalanced her and we now have a different one. She rears while doing groundwork but I believe that is a behavioral issue.
She is sore right where the cinch goes and forward a bit. In the last 2-3 months I have rode her less than 5 times and I haven't rode her for about 2-3 weeks. Her back is not sore when I touch it which is a first in a while, when we had that other farrier her back was always sore just touching it.
I rode her bareback and noticed that if I squeezed with both legs like to ask for a trot she would rear, if I asked for a turn on the hindquarters she had no issue. Once I get her trotting she is fine, but it is the transitions that bug her.
**This is a neighbors horse, not my own. I am looking for advice. Yes I do know I should probably have a vet look at it but like I said. It isn't my horse**
