She probably just needs that extra bit of ground work prior to a ride, especially if she doesn't get worked often enough. Some horses are just a little more 'frisky' when they've had time off (my mare is), and so it is a good thing to make sure they are listening to you before you hop on.
Basically, the whole event was my own stupidity and pride, and not really entirely my fault. Just felt like whining to some horse people ;) In any case I won't be riding for a while anyway, pretty sure I bruised my tail bone... Unless is snows tomorrow because there is nothing like riding in the snow!
