    I must say I noticed your user name...a fan of the band????ok back to business. Do you longe her before you ride? Have you had a vet check her? Does she act like she is in pain when you brush her?(mostly her back?) how long ago has she had the foal. Is the foal weaned? Sry for all the questions but we need the answers to go foward.

    Green Broke
    How long have you had her? Have you refreshed on groundwork since she has been able to work again?

    It could also be she was very green broke, then put out after breeding to wait until the foal was born, now the previous owner said he has gotten
    On her, but did he hit the dirt too.

    Is the foal still on her (nursing) if not how long ago was the foal weaned?
    Alot of questions need answered before giving any logical advice.
