Exclamation Help!! Horse bucking all of the sudden!!

My horse is a 5 year old mare aqha registered a sweetheart!! Can be bratty but I finally brought her home from where she was at...she has been here for two weeks exactly and the first couple of days she kept bucking while I lunged her she got out of that but now she is bucking when I'm riding her not a little crow hop but I still stayed on...somehow...then I lunged her right then and she was a maniac! I had a show a two weeks ago a she layed down! Her saddle was not tight and nothing anywhere!! Another thing is she is alone I have a radio playing all the time but she realy like other horses sooooo what do you think?? Also I am riding her in all the same thing the bridle to saddle pad help!!

Have you had her checked to rule out pain? I wouldn't ride this horse at all until you do..

Where does she live? Is it a small stall or big paddock? Maybe she needs turnout and/or more exercise.

I second the pain theory :). If it came out of the blue that usually means there's pain somewhere. You said there have been no changes to her tack, correct?

Perhaps it is the way she's being ridden and is suddenly fed up.

Has her feed changed in the move? Maybe you're grain or hay is too much for her.

Is she getting enough turnout and exercise?

Also, horses are not meant to be alone, they're herd animals, and I feel it's rather unfair to force them to be.

Look into the whole pain thing, yes, and why are you riding a horse you KNOW has sore feet?

My other question is what defines "bratty" prior to this and how did you deal with it? To me it seems entirely possible that this mare was testing you, you failed, she won, and now you have a real problem. Just my theory.

I did not see that the mare is now alone, but yes, that may make her anxious, since they are herd animals. It also sounds like the laying down incident was right at the time you brought her home? Before or after? Which is it. Both were 2 weeks ago?
