I've finally gotten back on my horse-First time in 7 months! Videos too!

Bella and I have had a lot of ups and down in the 2.5 years I've owned her. She is a high strung OTTB that I got from new holland auction. She hasn't been out of work for 7 months, it's just been that long since I've been on her. I've been taking lessons regularly. To make a pretty long story somewhat short, I having been allowing this woman to ride her and about 7 months ago(when she started riding her more) Bella started bucking. Her bucking has consistently been getting worse in the months since then. Told her I believed it was her saddle(and her harsh hands, but I didn't say that) she completely dismissed that idea, I bought a CC saddle that I believe would Bella and she refused to even try to ride in it because it was too big and said she would fall off, being a push over. Anyway, a girl from my former barn is now moving to this new barn where Bella is, she came with me there last night and I did a wither tracing of Bella and tell her shoulders were sore when I was pressing the flexible ruler to mold it to her shape. She would pin her ears and threaten to bite. So once I made the cardboard cutout I put it to the other saddle and I couldn't even make it fit because the flaps are too narrow, it's fine in the gullet tho. My new saddle fits perfectly with my thinline ultra sheepskin half pad under it. So the girl that was with me said she would get on(she's a teenager, no fear lol) and Bella was amazing! She jumped one small crossrail even with no problems(well rushing but can't blame her for that when she was used to pain!) There are some other details going on with this other woman, but I'm not going to get into that here. Here are the videos! The first 4 are of the other girl and Bella, feel free to critique Bella

These are me, we just walked because I just wanted it to be a nice easy relaxing ride, it felt so good to be back on her I nearly cried
