My mare lifts her hind end very high and kind of does a mixture of both bucking and kicking out together during a flying change? How do I teach her not to?

I would start looking at places where the horse could be stuck and sore. Some horses have exaggerated flying changes, but the kicking out suggests discomfort.
I don’t know exactly how long, but I think a few years

It sounds like discomfort, whether it's pain or just from an unfamiliar move. How long has she been doing flying changes?
