She was turned out daily, and stalled at night, which is what we do w/ our horses. So she eats pasture during the day, and I only give her a small amount of grain since she isnt being excersiced alot. So she's on a similar diet.
And she is in season right now, so that may be a part of it.
Luvs2ride, the saddle actually fits wonderful. That was my first thought that day when we brought her home. I don't have a lot of knowledge on saddle fitting so I actually had an amishman that lives out the road from me that makes and fits saddles for horses come check. He had the saddle on her w/ out the blanket. He checked my saddle on her, and my husbands. He recommends that I don't use my husbands saddle, as the tree is a little wide on her. But my saddle fits well.
But on a positive note, I have been riding her and spending time with her daily, and she is doing a complete turn around. You all are right when you said to let her settle in. Today, I took her on a 3 hour trail ride, and she did wonderful. The ground work before hand really helps.
However, she does not like my husband, at all. She wont even let him catch her, and will NOT let him ride her. He's been trying to win her over, but she seems to really prefer me.
