Hi everyone! I have a bit of a problem with my mare Meg. :( When I first bought her she was a saint, well behaved, brilliant to hack both alone and in company and she would be classed as an ideal all rounder/ confidence giver.
About a year ago, I moved yards. To a fantastic place I might add. With lovely people who I have become very close to. But about after three months of moving she changed. She's a lovely temperament still, around the yard, jumping and schooling etc, its just her behaviour has changed on hacks.
Her teeth and back are checked every 3 months. All her tack has been checked. I even paid for a full 5 stage vetting to see if there was anything underlying, but she passed with flying colours.
Whilst on hacks now (must be honest, don't do many now) she will get so far down the lane and then bronc, rear, tuck her shoulder in and spin! You name it, she tries it. It doesn't matter if we're alone or with a group, result still the same. She's not managed to unseat or ditch me, but she has been very close, and my nerves are wearing thin.
I've tried, turning in circles, urging her forward, trying a different route, all to no avail!
I don't mind staying within the yard, but I would like to hack out and have a change of scenery now and again. She's so sweet in any other way. She goes away to stud 2 weeks today, but I wanted to be able to hack her when she returns, but I'd really like to be able to get her out of this. For my sake and hers!
Hope one or all of you guys might be able to help me sort this out?!?!
