    Turn her out in the arena for a minute by herself, then freelunge her, then start come groundwork on leading.

    Yep, sounds to me like she is really fresh from the time off and it is possible she is in season. More groundwork should help teach her respect. Like someone else said, a stone bruise doesn't mean vacation. You can still work her from the ground and from the sound of it, probably should in the future. It is not from pain or she probably would have been limping from the start. Groundwork and more riding and I think the problem will work itself out.

    Thanks for the advice, the reason I have not done much work with her is because she was staggering to get around for almost a week, but she has gotten alot better over the 2 weeks and seemed fine the other day when I decided to ride her. I had still been out everyday for 2 weeks to catch her, check her hoof and groom her before turning her out again.

    Could somebody please explain about her coming into heat? What sort of behaviour to mares have around this time? How long does it last? What are the symptoms? And what should I do about it?

    You can tell they are coming into heat when they start "standing up" to geldings, pushing their tush in their face, also "peeing" but not really peeing. There isn't much you can do about it. But she does have to learn to behave even when she is in heat.

    Well i've been going out twice a day for the past 3 days and lunging her, at first she was spastic but then she just tired her self out and was really good. Yesterday I rode her around the paddock and she was much better, nothing but a little over enthusiastic. I've also been doing ground work with her especially for leading, she is much better now aswell.

    Many thanks for the replies!

    Glad to hear everything is looking better... sounds like she may just be a little fresh sometimes

    Just to be sure, I would mark the day on my calendar that she started acting up and be mindful of it in ~28 to 30 days. If it was "heat" then it may manifest itself again about that time.
