Ok, so I know that Monty has told about what to do with a cinchy horse in his books and in is Q & A. Although I didn't use Monty's technique, I managed to get my mare to overcome her problem. So then I moved on to the next one which was the pull back. I finally bought the Leader and am proud to say that it works. My mare pulled back when I tried to tighten the cinch and everything held up. Now I am back to square one. She rears sometimes and always dances when I put the saddle on. I do believe that this cinchy problem has made the pull back problem even worse. My mare has broken many ties and halters. And no I do not have a gate behind my horse like I should. Currently I don't have access to one and my hitching post is a lovely tree.
