If that's the case, assuming of course that all pain/discomfort is ruled out, I'm quite tempted to say she's telling you that she'd much rather be in the pasture than outside of it, for one reason or another. Mild pasture-sourness.

Well she sounds like she's trying to evade bit contact and make her way to the pasture. Or maybe the bugs are really bothering her.

Do you change anything when you go from indoors to outdoors?

Im guessing bugs because she tries to itch her legs because the flies are bad in my area

I've heard skin so soft works, flyspray, I personally use SWAT via a thin line from between their legs to their naval. Spray a rag with fly spray and get her legs and face (careful of eyes)

Some people say a nosenet helps with head flipping too.. or they have those fly masks you can wear whilst riding.

OP, next time you write a post.. put all of this in the first one instead of spread out.

He probably is pulling too much on your horse's face or he's hurting her back.

Hey, unless you are your brother, you lied about the whole enchilada.

Don't lie, it's extremely rude and unfair to those that take their time to help you instead of someone else that doesn't lie.

I'm extremely disappointed.
