Okay, okay! :P She had some behavioral issues under saddle. Anything that I did that she didn't like elicited some very fussy behavior (mini rears, crow hops, or bucks). It wasn't dangerous at this point, but it was very annoying. It wasn't like something she did once or twice per ride - more like once or twice per minute, for the whole ride.
The stupid thing is that when she wasn't being fussy, she was FABULOUS. She has gaits that would knock your socks off. And her personality from the ground is extremely sweet.
It could have been her teeth. It could have been her saddle (it was HER saddle, not mine). But whatever it was, there was not an obvious cause. And I don't want a horse that I have to tiptoe around.
If she gets over that silly stage, I would really recommend her. But as is, I just couldn't put up with her. :( So once again, I'm horseless.
