    My mare jigs too!

    She is in perfect health
    Feed, alpha a oil, happy hoof and spillers calm mix
    She is 17 and thoroughbred
    She is an a1 in the school can't fault her
    She is out majority of day exept when frozen (15 hours)
    Tried her in snaffle to dutch gag no difference
    Tried turning her around - she jigs the other way
    Halt her she refuses to walk on and gets aggitated
    Turn her in circles as soon as circle complete she tries to run again
    Hold her back she jigs
    Don't hold her at all she jigs
    Starts throwing her head up and down at stupid speeds if you try to discipline her
    No different alone or in company
    Have recently started to use whip when she jigs no difference

    Hi, how long have you had her, has she always done this, did she do it with the previous owners? Also have you checked stuff like your saddle, it may not fit correctly.

    Yeah, has she always done it?
    What do you do on her and what did her previous owners do on her? Sometimes when a horse does lots of speed work they want to 'go' all the time, hence the jigging when she can't. We have a horse like that and over the last few weeks we've been doing REALLY slow work on her(going for really long slow trail rides) and she is slowly calming down.
