Curious what bit you were using before and what you're using now.

Has anything else changed for her? Feet? Diet? Tack?

Her feet need to be trimmed but they're not long enough to bother her. She's barefoot too. Her diet only changed because she was pregnant but she transitioned back without a problem. Her tack doesn't seem to be a problem. I started her in an egg butt snaffle, changed it to a Tom Thumb Copper Mouth, then changed it to a full cheek snaffle. My friend told me to change it from the Tom Thumb because she thought it wasn't working for her. She bought me the new bit and it's worked the best out of all of them. When I ride, I use more leg than rein.

Did she 'fear/dislike' her tack before she was pregnant/foaled?

No. It didn't affect her at all when I used it on her then. When she reached seven months, I started riding bareback.

And after she foaled, and had time with her baby and stuff.. when you rode her again, did she react to the tack in this manner?

Not at all. She wasn't perfectly behaved but it's not a problem anymore.

Actually horse are amazingly stoic about pain. The fact that you are able to ride her, doesn't mean she isn't hurting somewhere, just means she may be hiding it.

I would get a chiro to work with her, and a equine massage for her. You would be amazed at the results.

You posted you were having problems. You were given suggestions and opinions.

Many of us are horse people of long standing and long experience. Which, in a nutshell, means we have been exposed to vets that don't have a clue as to what they are doing, especially if they are not an equine vet, but more of a cow vet, or small animal. We all have been around horses that proved to be having some serious problems, yet never really gave a sign that they were, or we have worked for training stables where that happened.

And we've seen the results too of horses started too young. And of horses with broken ribs, withers, vertebrae who are being ridden anyway, whose owners didn't have a clue anything was seriously wrong.
loosie and Skyseternalangel like this.

Horses make me a better person.
