Does anyone have any advice. I have a 7year old mare that is trained western pleasure and when we ride at home or at our trainer's place she does fine most of the time, but as soon as we go to a show she becomes a bipolar %$^^&%^!!! She doesn't listen, she anxious and does her absolute best to she her behind right in front of the judge. We have not went to any shows for the past 3 years due to having babies, but she was shown as a 3 and 4 year old and honestly acted better then.. I have been told its because she is a mare, to training in my usual bit and changing to a more harsh bit for shows, to giving her a mild sedative prior to leaving (not optional). Does anyone have any previous experience that might shed some insight, especially if you have worked through the same situation and made it work for you.
