First I will give a bit of background on my POA mare. She was purchased 3 yrs ago from a trader where she had been used as a carousel horse. She came with little "proper" training and became a project for my then 10 yr old daughter and I. She has since become a phenomenal jumper and has excelled as an all around pony in the show arena.
However, since day 1 she has had an attitude about much that we ask of her. Whether it was kicking out when teaching her to move her hip or bucking when leaving the group for a jumping course.
We've done all the normal things to try to help her with these problems. We've had a saddle custom fit for her, chiropractic work, dental work and she was just checked physically by a vet. Nothing seems to be making a difference. We have her on Tribute calm and easy. She is pastured 24/7.
Some days she is great but other days she will buck if you ask her for a collected lope. She may try rearing if you ask her to go. Mind you my daughter rides her in a rubber snaffle.
Our vet wants to bring her in an ultra sound her uterus. I have spent so much money on everything else with no success that I am afraid to throw money at one more thing. Any suggestions?
