Just wanted to add an update! I tried riding my mare in just a halter and she was ten times more well behaved. I'm going to get her teeth checked out and see if discomfort was contributing to her 'tude, though she has never been okay with a bit, even when I've tried different kinds and had the vet check her in the past.
But anyway, she tried a few tricks a couple times when her buddy took off galloping around the field, but I just drove her forward and she settled really quickly. Thank you all again for your tips! I'm looking forward to working with trainer!
