I just got my first horse a week ago. He is skinny. I wormed him and I am giving him Athlete's feed and beet pulp to fatten him up. He is a OTTB and I have rode him twice and he is very gentle and has very floaty movement. He only bucked once when I was riding him.
He is a 4 year old gelding, and is a 17hh dark bay. He has a little snip that is soo cute!
Okay, "only bucked once when I was riding him"??? He's cute, yes, but that sentence sends warning bells all over. Is it commonplace for the horses you've been riding to buck? Was it a real buck, or just a fiesty excited kick when you ask for the canter?
