I've fallen off Dougal 7 times since owning him. He has bucked me off 3 times. Two of those times were also combined with a bolt [the most recent being on Friday. That hurt. A lot. I landed on my head. XD] and the other I landed on my feet. He bucks a lot. It's one of his favourite past times, haha. The other bucking-off was off a cheeky little HighlandXConnemara I used to ride.
Only once, thankfully. It was off my first horse I owned as a 13 year old. It was, naturally, painful. But worse than the pain, when I fell I landed hard on my side, temporarily dislocating my hip and knees, so now I am permanately bow-legged from the trauma and still have intense hip pain, and have to wear a knee brace when I ride, sometimes. Oh, what we do for our precious equines. XD Posted via Mobile Device
Never.... Touch wood! Every horse I've owned has had an almighty buck in it, some twisting some fly bucks but all very talented at it! I think I've just learnt to sit them but my lot do find it highly amusing to play with new riders... I shouldn't larf but it is a lil funny! I think they assume everybody can sit them :/
I think the difference being none of my horses do it to be nasty tho, just for fun! I dnt envy those of you who have the 'i wana deck you' buckers!!
