I can see why you would be
I know horses can change when they get moved - especially mares who can go through this whole 'submissive behaviour' thing but that's aimed at other horses daring to give them a sideways glance type of thing and not a human handling thing that was never a problem before
I've had a lot of experience of new horses coming onto yards and they can sometimes try you out but this is your own horse that was originally well behaved.
Its fairly common for a horse to over react to something that causes them pain - as the chain did, even when they know you and trust you
I asked about the Lymes - ???????????????
