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 cant 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
Dont 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.

Riding a horse is not a gentle hobby, to be picked up and laid down like a game of solitaire. It is a grand passion. It seizes a person whole and, once it has done so, he will have to accept that his life will be radically changed.
