Hey guys, my appy mare is such a sweetheart most of the time, but she can be so touchy sometimes! She HATES being hugged around the neck, any sort of cuddling in the face/neck area, and being mounted bareback roughly. Almost all of our other horses are always cuddling people and such. The reason I am posting this is because I cannot mount her from the ground bareback because I have to jump/ climb onto her and if you don't get on fast, she'll buck so I just use the mounting block or get a leg up. I don't think it is a back problem, because she is fine with saddles, pushing on her back, and mounting in a saddle. She is also fine to ride bareback but just doesn't like being mounted anymore. When she was younger I used to be able to run and jump on her no problem. Do you think I just pissed her off by doing this? Is it possible to train her out of this or could it possibly be a back problem, even though she is fine with all the things I mensioned before? Thanks!
