Is this odd or what....

So under saddle my horse can really be a brat and she gets rushy...Well my instructor thinks she is not the horse for me and thinks I should see her....Which really upset me because she has noooo idea what the horse was like...Well I rode Lady today bareback and she was a complete angel my instructor and my boss were both shocked with how well she looked and how well she did....So I am wondering what I might be doing wrong in the saddle that is causing her to act completly different

Maybe her saddle is properly fitted to her? It may be pinching her and hurting her. If it isn't fitted then get it fitted or get a new one that will fit her!!

Yeah, I'm guessing saddle fit too.

Saddle fit is most likely the cause... but videos and pictures would be really helpful for determining the reason.

I agree....if its ONLY under saddle, then I think your saddle is the problem.

For such a drastic difference with the saddle, vs without, I would definitely be looking at saddle fit.

Wouldn't you do this bareback as well, especially since you don't have stirrups?

Perhaps your tense under saddle vs. bareback? Because I know when am riding bareback am more carefree then in the saddle..I would go with the saddle fit though like everyone above me. XD
