I looked into ulcers, but the symptoms don't seem right.
Also, if the tack were the issue, shouldn't she be fine with me on ground level?
Here's something new to add: a lot of times we ride bareback. Today, I noticed that her ears would swing backwards the moment we got near her back. So clearly she's sending the message "DONT YOU DARE GET ON ME". But why? Once were out on the path she's fine, its just the mounting.
I'm getting really worried, and they plan on selling Tijuana because the adults don't have time to correct her habits. Of course, my boyfriend hopes to buy her so I'm not worried about her new home, I just don't like that we'd have to give up on her like that.
