    Pretty much every time a horse has bucked on me, I find myself in front of the saddle, LOL!! I think its because I lean foward slightly when I sence a buck coming, with is the stupidest thing I could do. But lately I just sit deep and do NOT lean foward and turn my horse in a circle - one rein stop. Works well (:

    One rein stops are good, but I have one horse right now that is still really persistent. She bucks every 3-5 minutes because she thinks if she keeps on I will get off. (she went lame and bucked, we realized she was lame and got off right after she had been bucking)

    My advice would be relax deep into your seat and hang on. Keeping the heels down is really good advice too!!! :) It helps you to hang on to her more and keep yourself from being thrown out of your seat as much. Each time she bucks work her harder and try to reingage her mind. Do large circles or firgure eights to help her start thinking and listening again.

    I agree with the suggestions. If you can sorta anticipate when they are going to buck; shorten your reins up and bring her head up as best as you can, sit down deep in your saddle and drive her/him forward with your seat and legs. I was once told that the best gait to ride when they are bucking is a trot, just trot them through it. If it continues I would get a professional in to see what the problem is. Buckings no fun! I have been chucked on to some very poorly broken in horses!
