Exclamation what wrong with our horse?

My brothers horse acted up when we were at the county fair and started to buck straight up and down it was bad we first thought it waz because my horse wasn't around and he wanted to be by her but we found out that couldn't be it. So then we were wondering about this hay my friend gave me and I did some research and heard about this type of Tansy Ragwart. So I was wondering if you could help me out a bit with what it was.

Why do you suspect tansy ragwart? From what I've read, it can cause irreversible liver damage to horses and cattle so I can't imagine why it would be bailed for horses.

Has your horse been exposed to shows before or was this rather new to him. Odd behavior can sometimes be attributed to something new, especially with a lot of commotion going on - flags, lots of people, typical things at a fair. All that assuming that it wasn't physical such as grit under the saddle pad, or new tack, etc.

It would probably just be better and faster to just google it then post it on here....

It could be one of many many different things ranging from discomfort, pain, excitement, overstimulation, fear. All of these things can cause abnormal behavior in any horse.
