mare with a temper when in heat

I've been working with this 6 year old quarterhorse mare a bit and she is a pleasure to ride....unless she's in heat. Then she will buck and rear and back up until she hits something. Is there anything I can do to calm this storm? haha I'd prefer not to have to fight with her all the time and just get work done with her.

There are products designed for horses like ReguMate. As a mare gets closer to standing heat she becomes more stimulated from various things. If you track when she wants to stand with her tail curled and continually squirt urine, you'll be able to plan your riding time around this. Usually the following day they are fine. It's all hormonal.

Two words: Mare Magic.

Selena is an absolute B**** in her season. We put her on that, MASSIVE improvement.

Pssh.I didn't pick up the wrong lead
It's called a counter canter...
...A very advanced maneuver.
