my broke broke horse tried bucking me

OK we have a dead broke mare never throws a fit ever I have had my kids on her we ride her all over! Well yesterday I decided to saddle her up. I got on and she reared up and took of like she was at the kentucky derby! Scared the crap outta me! I rode her for about 15 min and she was calmed down acting like her normal self. We were standing in front of our property and all the sudden she was bucking and crow hopping! She tried throwing me but did not succeed:) but I got off QUICK as I broke my tailbone about 3 months ago and really shouldnt be on but she NEVER throws a fit:( I wanted to get back on to let her know who is in charge, my feelings are a little hurt:) I just don't know what got into her and I KNOW I should not have let her get away with it but noone was here to get back on. Do you think she is going to test this theory again? Iam worried that my favorite horse is going to go crazy

Either she is fresh due to being out of work [some horses go crazy!!] or she's hurting somewhere.

My bet is on saddle fit issues.

If was completely out of character for this horse, I would get her checked by a vet and make sure there isn't anything wrong with her health-wise. Also, make sure none of the tack was pinching or anything.

I forgot to add the only difference was the saddle I use a lightweight abetta when I ride her and my husband has a big heavy leather one he rides with her and I used his I wouldnt think she would care, but I guess you never know!

Well there you go.

Your husband's saddle clearly has something about it that she doesn't like. I doubt it's the weight, but more likely the shape of it being wrong for the shape of her back, or there being something wrong with the underside of it. A screw sticking out, a grass/hay seed stuck in it...

Does sound like something is hurting her, horses usually act out for a reason.

When was the last time you (or anyone) rode her?

My husband uses that saddle with her when he rides her, I rode her about a month ago the kids have rode her about 2 weeks ago I didnt ride her for very long as my tailbone does not allow it.

Green Broke
Could have thorn/twig or something embedded in her belly under girth.

Saddle blanket could have burrs in it..saddle could have nails coming loose in it?

Pain is what I would think.

For a horse to act that out of character, when it's never happened before, I would be checking everything I could think of. Change in feed, or pasture condition. Change in level of exercise. Change in and condition of tack. When were her teeth last done? Does she have muscle/joint soreness? How are her feet? Does she have an internal health problem?

There are a lot of things that could be going on, but I would be investigating everything I could think of.
