If she has been acting girthy and pawing the ground and this is not usual behaviour for her I tend to agree this sounds like a pain issue. Firstly I would get her back and saddle checked to rule this out. Glad to hear you are okay.

I'm glad you are ok.

Honestly though, riding with side reins was a terrible idea. Horses that aren't used to side reins have to be driven forward because otherwise they're most likely going to go up (rear) in an attempt to evade the pressure that the side reins is putting on them. Her bucking was also most likely her reaction to something new that she wasn't comfortable with.

I've ridden horses in side reins but they were used to them and I had a trainer on the ground with a lunge whip to ensure that they went forward, if needed. For the most part side reins aren't intended for use while riding and it's really dangerous to do so. Side reins are intended to be used while doing ground work.

Folks, do you actually RIDE with side reins at all? In my understanding side reins are for lunging only. You ride with draw reins from what I know (although I never used them, just saw people did). With that being said to use either you MUST have a knowledge on how to use them properly or you can be in a big trouble (which sounds like happened this time).

Marlea, I'm very glad you are OK. Please, please do some research (and get some feedback) next time before you decide to try new gimmick.
