This is my first time to post so please forgive any posting etiquette. I have a 7 year old thoroughbred mare. She had a foal 3 years ago and went back in traning. Shortly after starting her training she started exhibiting some extreme behavior. Not exactly stud like but at times similar.She stopped going forward and began to rear and buck. I had her checked out by my vet and she suggested regimate for 6 months to restart her cycle. While on regimate she was a little better but not much, she also started the extreme behavior of kicking straight out and up with her hind feet. Consistently. We checked for a granulos tumor and tests were negative. We went off of regimate to see if she would cycle normally and she appeared to. The behavior has gotten so bad that we cannot even get on her. We have done multiple chiro adjustments just to see if that would help, no changes. Has anyone experienced this type of problem?? Does anyone know of another treatment that might reduce this behavior, the vet doesn't believe that removing the ovaries will help. Any suggestions that could be made would be greatly appreciated. I don't want to breed her again, she is an extrememly talented jumper and we never got to go forward with her training when this behavior showed up. I would rather not breed her as she is a terrible mother and takes a lot of monitoring the first 30 days. Thank you again for your suggestions.

Hey Robin, Have you ever heard of the treatment where they place a marble in the mares uterus to mimmick pregnancy? It keeps them from cycling. I can't tell from your post, was she broke/trained before foaling? And has this behavior been going on for 3 years now? Or did I misunderstand that?

They also have this thing called Q-Link that helps with behavioral issues. I work at the Scottsdale Arabian Horse Show every year for Schniders saddlery and people swear but it. I had one lady that came in and bought them for every horse in her barn and most of the people in her family as well. Might be something to look into.

Thank you for responding to my cry for help. The mare had been working and in training prior to foaling, she popped a large splint that was going to sideline her for 2-3 months so we bred her.

Heather this is an interesting concept, I will look into it. I am just at my wits end. I raised this mare and she was awesome to watch work until the behavior started. She is a very kind mare normally and when she is in the full rage of this behavior she acts like I am doing something to her and gets even more upset, she holds her breath and then begins to hiccup. Thank you again for responding to my post.

Robin, I would say at this point it couldn't hurt to try it. I talked to a few people who used it out at the show and they said once they put it on with in a few hours, it was like a completely diff horse. There were even people that used them for stall issues, not just performance.
