One thing you can try is to tack her up and then not ride. She may just always associate the saddle with work. So tack her up ( no bridle) and then take her out to graze for an hour. Try this for a couple days. You can also tack, untack,tack up, untack and so on for a loooong time. When she holds still, let her rest a few minutes. Then go again. When you get it on two or three times with minimal fuss, put everything away.That was the lesson. Repeat this many many days in a row. Also, take a spin on her bareback once in a while if you can. The mixing it up really helps. Even if you are bareback and have to go leadline - sometimes some horses are very very very wiggly even at a simple walk!!!! Safety before pride.
Well, I ride at her owner's house, and they don't have cross ties. However, i think that i COULD cross tie her in the entrance to the barn; I'd just need the ties themselves. It's hard, because I can only get out there to ride 3 times a week, and I'm paying money to lease her and ride, so I get bummed out when I end up having to do a ton of groundwork, you know? However, I made the choice to lease a green mare, so it's something I should work on more.
I definitely do mix it up :) We ride bareback at least once a week, or I'll take her out and ride around their pasture, working patterns thru the trees.
