Hey hey hey, no judging ALegUp. I'm not some novice rider who's ony been on a couple well mannered gaited horses. I've been on hundreds of ill mannered brats who were happy to rear but i've never seen one that had any talent at all for bucking.
I have only ever been around ONE gaited horse that could buck, a 23 year old TWH who after needing three weeks of stall rest was released by the vet to go back to being turned out for another two weeks before riding her again. She promptly took off in a fast gait, let out a huge buck and fell down, did a complete face plant, and flipped over onto her back. That is the only time i've seen a gaited horse buck,
SueNH, that's what i've seen a lot of gaited horses do, a sort of rearing spin. I've also been around a ton that bolted, a few that crow hopped, a few that kicked out but never one that could buck.
This little baby crow hop is about the worst i've ever seen a gaited horse do without face planting. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=isFspdhYZmo
I've never said they couldn't just that I personally have never seen one buck.
