So, a couple of days ago, my mare WOULD NOT stand to be mounted. She kept walking back and turning her head towards me. Because she is usually so good at this, I didn’t want to force her but I kept observing her, readjusting her tack, all the way to taking the saddle off, palpating her back and saddling her again. This went on for good 10 minutes. I just couldn’t figure it out. I thought she was in pain but she was great once I got on.

Only today did I figure it out: my gloves smelled like treats because I brought them to the yard in the same bag!
Today I used a different, “unscented” pair of gloves - no problem :)

Horses are somehow both very easy and very difficult to figure out.

I guess some days you just gotta listen to your horse, she was definitely telling you that you MUST have treats there,
Glad you figured it out
