Ironically, Shay-las retired mare did that all the time as well. Turns out, she has either a severe soft tissue energy or a potentially fractured vertebrae (unable to determine without x-rays which we can't get without driving to the next province). I assume the extreme pain of having a rider on her back likely decreased her ability to control her bladder as she was concentrating so hard on keeping those muscles tight.
She's 19 and now retired, but was ridden her entire life without a diagnosis. Everyone just thought she was "fresh" when she spent her time bolting and bucking.
