The only reason i did was because she is pretty hot sometimes and she was not listening to me. She was turning and kicking out at me, i was only lunging her. She's fine when she's doing what she wants, but when it comes to me asking her to do something, she acts out.

@Buba13. And I'm not trying to stop her bucking with hobbles, that's silly. That was a totally different circumstance.

Ding ding ding.
We have a winner.

The more the OP posts the more this answer is truly the only correct one.

Asking for suggestions does involve TELLING you something.

Working a youngster is not the same as working an older horse.

Since you don't know her background you should start from scratch and treat this horse as if it never had a rider or handled before and take it one step at a time.

If you are in a hurry then get a professional that can "do it" in one of those 30 day turnaround promise programs.

Right please people stop bugging him/her with the hobble danger!!
As a rescue pony you must NEVER please never hobble her (no pony should ever be hobbled anyway)
she will be in pain. get her checked out as soon as possible

Sounds like you missed the signs of a pain issue and she finally had enough. Horses just don't decide one day to have outbursts. Either you were pushing her beyond her level of training (aka- confusing) or she was in pain.

My Morgan Genevieve: I think you need to swallow your pride, grow up, and take the advice of the very knowledgable and very correct members on this forum.

SaraHVR, Bubbu13, and Spyder all hit the nail on the head. I suggest you re-read their advice and take it.

I'm wondering why a rescue horse, or any horse for that matter, should not be hobbled. It is a terribly useful thing to teach a horse, if done properly. Also does not cause pain if taught and done properly.

As for the bucking thing. As has already been addressed, if this is a recent thing, tack fit and pain issues would be the first thing to look into. If the horse just doesn't behave when she wants to do things you want her to that she doesn't like, that's a lack of respect. Separate issue from a possible pain issue though. The lack of respect should be dealt with before it gets worse.
