Angry Napping and rearing

My pony loves to jump,always does a clear round but recently she has refused to enter the ring-running backwards and rearing.We've checked her back and teeth and she's had a long break. We're fairly sure that she still loves jumping but we can't really see a way ahead with this problem. And we need to sell her as she's outgrown we don't want her to go somewhere where she'll get beaten up so would welcome any input.

Good suggestion Curly_Horse - I just moved it for her.

Welcome to the forum Madmagic.

Horses usually begin to become a problem doing things that they did willingly because they become sour to the routine or because they have learned they can get away with it. If you have been doing nothing but jumping her, she may need a break. Try taking her on a hack or anything just to change up the scenery.

Don't rest her near the entrance keep her moving until she is due in. If you want to stop and have a rest do it near the float or away from the entrance to the ring.

If she starts going again just keep her going forwards! Do not worry about anything else! Keep her going forward, carry a whip and if she goes to rear (you should feel it coming) turn her off give her a smack and a decent kick and get her to go forward.

When she is in the ring reward her.

Fighting her is not going to make things better. She's telling you she really doesn't WANT to go in to the ring. She's not willing. So I'd change it up for her. Trail ride her, etc. Sounds like she's getting sour with jumping.

I agree with some hacking etc. but please do deal with the rearing as well as once they have learnt it and it has not been corrected it will arise again in future and it will become harder to deal with every time that it has not been corrected.
