I'd rather rider a bucker b/c you can jump off at any time. I once had an app stallion who rared up and fell over backward. I would never want to be in that situation.

I am into training, so I would have neither.... I have had both, and cured both, so I don't hafta choose. I can't see as either to have an 'advantage', and either would need to be trained out.

I would prefer a bucker, but I wouldn't allow either. The horse that bucks every once in a great while is bad enough, but one the bucks at the slightest thing to going to be sold. A rearer (one that does it any time it wants to) is getting sold to a rodeo company or a sluaghter house I don't care which one. I'm not risking someone's life on unpredictable horse.

Bucker anyday. Used to ride two horses that would buck at a canter. Both easy to ride but I have come off because of bucks once or twice if you count an equiment failure and a very confused horse. Lol

I'd prefer neither, but if I had to pick, a bucker. ;) Rearing is extremely dangerous, & cannot always be prevented/stopped. Sometimes yes it can, but not all the time. Bucks I can really handle (even if the horse has powerful ones) & usually can be stopped.

Really if we could , we would rather have neither
A buck here or there, could never compare
To that rearing horse , that would dare
So all of us, me for sure, wouldn't have a horse do either.

Bucking or rearing?

I would take bucking over rearing. I have rode out both. Rearing is much more dangerous because the horse is off balence and you are in a precarious position to be crushed if they flipped over...just look at some of the videos on youtube

After you have had a few go up and over with you nearly killing you, I think you would prefer a buck.

I think it would depend on the horse. I voted 'rear' because I am horrible at staying on when a horse bucks, and it absolutely terrifies me. I've been on a horse that reared a few times, but never very high. I think for me personally I would rather have a horse that reared as long as it didn't go very high. Again that's just for me because bucking scares me to death. XD

I'd prefer a bucker...

Can someone answer this question, I don't have much experience with rearers, but why would a horse rear so high that it falls over backwards? You'd think the horse would realise that it would have to hurt! Lol Do they do it accidentally? Seems strange...
