First lesson in 9 weeks, second lesson this year - she’s been rehabbing due to injury (since spring last year). Mare is ridden 5/6 times a week - schooled once and hacked up to an hour the other days (mix of walk and trot but usually 45 mins to an hour). Saddle checked 10 days ago, physio out last week. Mare has a lovely temperament, not hot at all and if anything needs more cranking up normally. We had a disagreement - well 2 - both times I was off (though the second time I hung on for a good while longer!). She was a twonk to canter - over excited, I could feel her building up and whilst we got a couple of normal steps in between the falls (and I spent a good while getting a nice relaxed trot) it was just too much for her. Bucks and spins galore! Second fall hurt so popped her on lunge and she was just full of beans and energy - I don’t lunge as a rule anymore (injury) but she’s normally v polite so v unlike her. Instructor and I both agree she moved v well on lunge but looked full of herself. If I’m honest she was buzzier than usual when I schooled on Sunday too. So plan (aside from sitting on an ice pack) is to remove all feed (she gets a handful of topspec lite and a little bit of fast fibre to carry supplements), give her a few days off and look at whether this is linked to seasons. She can be a little mareish during spring/summer and I’ve had issues with over excitability v occasionally (think handful of times in 3 years) when schooling in summer before (mainly canter work). We have an amazing partnership and disagreements are so rare so I don’t want to overreact - but her temperament has been a huge positive for my confidence (which I really need to protect) so could do with my normal safe neddy. Could seasons do this - I assume it could if she was sore and grumpy?
