Thank you all so much! I have always been very gentle with her until she started doing this, in fact, since she started doing this was the first time that I actually had to hit her hard. Before this, she was the kind of horse that my mom put her baby on and my pregnant aunt got on with her toddler! She has always been very trusted but now we are not so sure... I know she trusts me a lot because she usually lets me do just about anything with her. In fact, just the other day while I was riding, I noticed some burrs stuck onto her fur on the belly and she sat still and let me tug them off of her without a problem, which meant leaning out of the saddle and sticking my hand in between her um... aww... brain freeze... the places underneath her legs and stomach, the kind of armpit... :P Sorry, I can't think of the name right now, I usually know almost all of their parts. Anyways, she didn't even flinch and like I said before, I could pour hydrogen perioxide on her feet. We have not taken her in for a vet visit. I think that could be possible, the other day when I rode, we hadn't gone for a mile yet and no trotting or running and she was already snorting and puffing. Usually she does not start doing that until at least 3 miles. When I lead her, she is the perfect angel, no dragging, head tossing, following my cues for back, forward, side, turn, etc perfectly. It is just the saddling and mounting. I just really want this to stop. We don't have money for a trainer, although my dad had a couple of horse expert friend who may be willing to help out in this area. I will talk to him about it! Thank you all for helping!
