As an aside, do not use stirrups with a bareback pad! That will hurt her. Perhaps if youve done much of that, could have a bearing on the broncing. Sounds likely a saddle pain issue though to me. No, thats definitely not 'testing you', it is very real pain/fear. Im assuming by the sound of it, its not something new/different youre doing, so not fear, except that pain caused panic.

This sounds like pain and if this horse has bucked you off twice, stop riding it, she knows how to buck off a person, something a horse shouldn't learn. Stop working her until the pain problem is dealt with. If no cause is found, I would send her out to a good trainer that knows she has already been mucked with and can deal with such problems.

It COULD be an issue with the saddle but it would have to be "that bad" that she was expecting it with the pad. Glad the vet is coming out. It could be a mental issue too.

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. @loosie 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.

Yes you could say she is since she has never been loped and galloped with a rider...and she is 8 yrs old... my main goal for getting her was basically getting her finished to where I could do lots of things with her,like my old horse,but as time went on I realized I couldn't do it.I've considered sending her to a trainer to get finished,but now this happened.money where are you when I need you?

Since the vet found nothing wrong with her back, I'd be looking at her reproductive system, especially this time of the year since this behavior has escalated to the point of her bucking without paying attention to what she's running into. Do you track her heat cycles so you know if she is regular?

@Prairie
In the time I've had her,she hasn't acted up while in heat.her prev owner told me she is great while in heat,and she doesn't act very mare-ish.What I've noticed is that she carries her tail up,and has a prance in her step usually.She's more alert,and notices the neighbor's horses more.Thats the first few days,and then you can hardly tell she is in heat.I really don't know what else it could be, I may have to sell her because I have no confidence in getting back up or even trying,I'm scared she's gonna hurt herself or me.I don't have enough experience for one thingit's not a final decision yet.

I'm sure we already covered this but can you have a trainer out to at least evaluate her?
