    In all honesty, I have to agree with Skips. She isn't your horse. Unless you are being paid to fix her issues, then just exercise her on the lunge. There is no sense in risking your health or hers unless that is what you signed up to do.
    its all sorted now, it was my fault she reared but anyway.
    Lily used to be a show jumper, but for the past few years has just been used for breeding, and general riding. Her owner at the moment is actually a novice, and she's never had a problem with her. :)

    thank you :) I was actually surprised at how responsive she is to my seat, she went straight from trot to stand at one point, guess I used a little too much seat lol

    I'm glad that you've figured out what the problem was and that you got back on even when you were scared. When I first got Quinn, my Appaloosa, I had to show him that I wasn't afraid and that I was the boss. After that he was a complete sweetie to everyone.
