The vet came out yesterday and filed some sharp teeth and pulled her wolf teeth.That would explain her not being able to eat hay.The vet couldn't find anything wrong that would make her blow up like she did,he suggested a trainer near here that would be able to set us up for a lesson and be able to figure out what is going on.I'm going to have to wait a while since money doesn't grow on trees...
My mare has to take time off to heal too.I'm just glad she doesn't have anything wrong with her, hopefully we can get to the bottom of this issue,without any accidents or bad endings.
The saddle pad in question was a different pad that I've never used on her.
there was no stirrups,we don't have a pair for it.the saddle hadn't been on her for a month or two. it fit her like it was made for her,she was way more relaxed in it.I'm no saddle fitter,so I could be wrong,but I saddled her with no pad,and it sat perfectly!I was relieved to finally have a saddle that fit her right.I'm looking into getting her finished,because I'm not experienced enough to train her,and I don't have the know how,and what if I would have been on her when she went through that fence?I think I'd been thrown by then,and possibly broke some bones
thanks for the advice.We will see where this goes and hopefully its a good one from here on out.
