Have you ever had any riding lessons with her? If you haven't then it might be something to consider because every time your horse leaps or decides it wants to do its own thing, I bet you get really frustrated and possibly even annoyed and sometimes it is difficult for you to look at the full picture of what is happening when you are trying to 'battle it out' with him/her. If you had an instructor in the school with you he/she would be able to offer immediate advice on what is happening and how to control it. It worked for me when by 15.2hh Irish Cob decided it was time to start severly bucking and rearing! Good luck!
