She's never really been that type of horse to need frequent riding to stay broke. Definitely appreciates it, but where I kept her before it was sometimes nearly impossible to ride regularly. What's she eating?

She did go from 24/7 pasture to back in the stall at night, but that was a couple months ago. The past couple weeks she's been back on 24/7 pasture.
Are you not able to ride as often (you mentioned the summer was great)?
I was out at the barn every day, but didn't ride her every day. I'm still
at the barn every day but same deal. There were times where I didn't ride for a week or two then would hit a trail no problems.
I've got a trainer who can come out whenever. These fits aren't anything new though. This is actually more like the horse she was before
the summer. Or last year when my trainer was frequently working with us. She lost a considerable amount of weight during the summer (so I wasn't riding her that frequently because
of that fact). I'm not sure if it's the weight, the weather, or she's just feeling more herself again. This isn't the first time this mare has thrown fits like this and I've gotten her vet checked but no problems showed up. I took her to my trainer's place for a week back in March. She's kinda behaving exactly like she did then. So this isn't a new occurrence for her
The summer behavior was the amazing change to something different.
