As for the gait she could jsut be in a transtion. To a differen gait. But who knows lol
thank you. My head is fine now, just had a headache for a couple of hours after lol I dunno. I think she's just a bit of an odd one lol

I gotta say that I get the feeling that there's some real holes in her training. You might want to get someone to work with you.

Did you say you had a helmet? You take care of yourself, or I'm going to worry about you!
I've ridden her bareback before without any problems..if anything she's usually calmer when im on her bareback lol
Yeah I had a helmet, I wouldnt dare get on her without one lol

Want to add that a horse doesn't buck someone off for no reason; there was a reason in her mind. When you take her a step or two back to fill in the holes in her education, you'll need to solve the puzzle of why she went to unload you. Only when you understand, will you be able to fix it so that she doesn't want to repeat it. A few possibilities:

1. She's a "make me!" horsenality, & they buck rather than go forward.

2. She got scared from your "feel" on her back; crouching like a predator on her?

3. Something scared her in the environment, & she wanted you off so that she could escape.

No she's deffinitely not a "make me" type of horse, she's quite the opposite.
& I wasnt sitting any differently to how I usually do, and she's usually fine. She didnt seem scared at all, she had her ears forward when she done it & was walking really calmly & kinda just plodding along before she done it

I absolutely love her coloring. What a gorgeous mare. It seems like you must have taken a good tumble. Refreshing to see a good rider wearing a helmet. The second you get those beautiful animals, you're risking yourself significant injuries, which are not very forgiving to your head. Good for you.

I trialed a horse one day to buy him (and didn't!) and he did exactly that, then someone I know bought him and tried all they could to train him up, they also had chiropractors etc out to him after he wouldn't stop doing it. They then found out he had ruined a neck muscle (I was told he snapped it but i'm doubtful on that) he ended up being put down as it couldn't be fixed.

Are you sure she's not in any pain? Danasinga didn't show any signs he just suddenly exploded and left me winded on the ground.

Maybe that saddle doesn't fit right? Even though she showed no signs she still could have been in pain.

(I'm not trying to tell you she IS in pain btw, who am I to know just suggesting it from my experience)

nope saddles fine, had my cousin check it she's been trained in saddle fitting she said it seems fine. Rode her a few days after and she was brilliant, didnt put a foot wrong. Rode her today aswell. I think she's in season at the moment though so that could be why. She's pretty stroppy lol

She is a pretty girl, I love her :P im biased though lol
Yeah I can safely say that was my worst fall, I actually cried from the pain of my leg. I've never got on a horse without a helmet, even on Corkie and I've been riding him for 8 years & trust him loads lol

That's a good point, I had an arab mare when I was 9 and the only time he ever tried to buck me off was when she was in season at the local show, and a few days before.

And ouch, I know what the bruised leg feels like, it will probably get more colourful to I know mine did
