I would prefer a bucker, it's less dangerous.

Being a new horse person I am nervous of both. Kyanne has done one tiny buck when I was trying to get her to go across water and it scared the hello pajesus out of me. But if I really had to choose I guess a bucker, just because I don't want a horse on top of me. I know that being thrown and falling off will happen one day, i'm just not looking forward to it.

I would rather ride my horse than my husband; She's funner and doesn't expect anything in return!

I would rather have a bucker anyday, rears can go nasty ie all the way back and over, seen it and omg mate it, pluss with bucks all you need to do it have the head up and hello gone haah, and I already have a bucker, what a blessing

well considering the my old horse was taught to rear and i wasnt told of it until i accidently cued him to three years later and then getting rebel as a baby and that seemed all of what he knew i would rather take a bucker versus a rearer since i have had my fair share of it

I'd take a bucker any day. My boy went through a bratty bucking stage and I broke him of it without any harm to either of us!

Personally, I wouldn't really want either to happen, but it does, and I would say i'd rather a bucker because rears are more dangerous. A horse I ride sometimes bucks when you ask him to canter and so now i'm kinda used to it too.
