When I first tried out my mare, 1/2 Connemara 1/2 Standardbred, she was great, mareish attitude, but she would go just fine and jump like a normal horse. She had some issues with riding and learning to trust me, but now, over a year 1/2 later, she has put all of her trust into me and I can do just about anything with her... Except ride. Whenever I ask for a canter or for her to jump under saddle, she pins her ears, puts her nose to her chest, runs and bucks. Over jumps, she will buck as hard as she can and pin her ears. I started using a hackamore with her a long while ago, and that stopped her from grabbing the bit and running and she is much happier in it. But, the canter and jump issues are still the same. She is amazing at both when she is lunging or loose in the arena, but under saddle it is a completely different story, I just don't understand?

When I had her at the past barn, she would sometimes canter and jump just fine, and then a couple times later, she would get pissy and do what I previously said. My new trainer was baffled by what she was doing and told me that she had thought over a time when she knew a mare that showed the same kind of attitude towards work, so the owners tried breeding her, but she aborted, and when they had her checked out, they discovered she had cysts on her ovaries, and that was causing the pain.

I have had flexion tests and her back checked out, and neither came up negative, her joints and her back were in perfect shape. I just don't know what to do? I don't want to call the vet and get myself in a financial windfall that I won't be able to afford.

Any ideas?

Here are links to some videos:

To show how far we've come and how happy she is, just not with the riding -- A year ago I couldnt take her on the trails, she was too scared. Now we go out for bareback trail rides, through water, across ditches, anything, and shes more than happy.

Any advice? I want to be able to ride her daily and not worry about her being in pain. =(
