Sorry themacpack, I have had her a month or so now. She has recently had a vet check and is sound. Her tack has been checked and is checked regularly. And she's always been like this I have known her all my life but she's gone worse when schooling because she hasn't done a lot.

Video would really help. And when you take her tack off is she ouchy or sensitive?

Has she ever had a chiro visit and work her over? Could be something out of whack in her structure.

It sounds as though she is sour. Have you taken her on a trail ride to get her to relax adn be happy ? What are you schooling her in ? Is it causing her pain ? Example jumping fast turns ? Hard arena landing ? Going into a fence crooked not setting up correct ? Or if , reining, sliding , stopping turning fast could all cause pain and grumpiness . You may say you are soft on the bit, but do you have to much pressure, to little pressure ? Bit setting in her mouth correct ?
Saddle pad not clean , something poking her? Same for the cinch/girth ..

Do you have trails available or is all riding in a ring? Maybe she's just at the point of being a sourpuss. Getting out and about might be a real treat. Does she have pasture turnout? Has she been ridden by a variety of riders with many different levels of experience? There are a lot of factors here that we don't know.
I try and approach all I do with the horses in a direct and this-is-what's-expected manner. Horses like consistancy...that's how they can come to trust you. They are a lot happier when they can relax and know the rules aren't going to be changing all the time.
Do you have someone who could watch what you are doing and give you some pointers? Sometimes we are doing something to cause a problem and we aren't even aware of the fact that we are doing it.
Good luck to you and your new horse.
