Yesterday I rode Luca for the first time after 3 days of laziness and he bucked under saddle- twice! He's never done that before...he was so frisky! I quickly corrected him though and to be honest, those bucks were so graceful, I was thinking: "what sort of comfy canter is that?" until I noticed he was actually bucking. It was only two leaps though and before that, one tiny one.
Ah...I've always been so proud that I had a non-bucking horse that didn't buck even if I went full speed gallop on the giant paddock...but now I guess I can't be so sure anymore. I really do hope it doesn't become a habit now that he knows how to buck. Seriously, he never knew how to buck, just did little weird hops.
But at least he's a graceful bucker.
