My new horse has changed a lot for some reason I can not figure out. When I first got her we went to the Martha Josey clinic and she had beautiful turns. Now, she is turning really wide, she won't rate at all, and she is running right through the bit. I had in her the Martha Josey O ring Combination bit (Circle Y Martha Josey O-ring Combination Bit 120) and I switched her to a gag bit with a twisted wire mouth and a dog bone in the middle which lightens up some of the pressure on her mouth. I thought she was doing fine in that bit until I took her out into the arena and she ran through it just like the other bit. I even had my friend who is a very competitive barrel racer hop on her and she ran so wide they hit the fence on the first turn.
I am not sure at this point what to do. I don't know why she changed so suddenly (within two months). I am still riding the same and we thought it was her hocks at first so we got them injected and there is still no change.
Any advice would be awesome!!! Please send links too!
