    Thank you everybody!! I looked up your suggestion and I honestly don't think it's a pain ordeal. She gets massaged on a monthly basis since she is spoiled :P and the lady who does it is a well known therapy woman. She has gotten rid of six year old scar tissue in another rescue, allowing him to be again. So the point of this little rant was to say that she's good at what she does lol! After having a vet out, the chiropractor out, the woman who massages her, even a farrier to see if its the feet, they all can't seem to find a pain spot. My vet is also a dentist and has checked her teeth to see if maybe that's the issue and no. I would LOVE to find it as a pain thing though..as weird as that sounds. Then there's a reason she is like this. I just had a vet out last week asking him.

    I appreciate everyones input and have been researching and taking suggestions :)

    There are only two possibilities pain or behavior. Neither of these are helped by taking the horse out and working working working (the sweaty saddle pads idea).

    If it's pain, it's pretty clear why that won't work.
    If it's behavior - all you do is create a much fitter horse. I had a chronic bucker/rearer and I made this mistake of working the snot out of her - and it just meant that I had to work/lunge her for longer and longer each day.

    Do you have a trainer? I am assuming that you are in my area as you got her from NH, if that's the case, message me if you'd like some help finding a trainer.

    I was working with a couple different trainers. One told me straight up that she was better off left in the slaughter pen. One she injured and that individual is a big eventer and just worked all winter for this season so didn't want a bigger injury. I'm going to try someone else once I get up the money. Being young I pay for her, my car, my rent, and all that fun stuff so I barely have any money leftover towards the end of the month. But I've been in contact with a trainer who thinks he may be able to help her..

    And Camelot Feed pulled her from NH (probably should've mentioned that?), in which a local rescue I work with pulled her. As soon as she was in their care, she was in mine. But I appreciate your offer, wish I could take you up on it.
