I agree with all your advice but as I said its not my choice.

    I think she's definitely in pain...

They have been trying to look for whats wrong with her for 6 years this includes my instructor who has trained horses and her hustband who is a race horse.
    I hope that they can figure out what is actually wrong with the horse before she hurts someone badly...Have they looked into things like Nymphomania? That is a thing that only effects mares, and from the 'flare ups' could be what this horse is struggling with; and it's not her fault, she's just in alot of pain...

    Her husband isn't a race horse he is a race horse trainer..... They have also had her checked by vets who look at their race horses and normal vets. They have had her back checked several times and nothing is wrong with it. Corby is a small pony with a big attidude. Please leave out the fact that she may be in pain as I can't do anything about it. I also know that it has been checked several times.

    I highly doubt that this is a regular occurance or that they aren't interested in finding out exactly why this happens. Having a school horse with a known history of dangerous behaviour and unpredictable bucking fits is negligence, and I don't know any riding school or trainer that would risk their business and livelihood by putting children on a known to be dangerous horse.

    She is only ridden in the advanced groups and she has a document signed before anyone rides any of her horses so she can't be held resposible. This is the story of Corby it may help you undestand the mind of Corby:

    Corby was highly drugged when my instructor got her, she was perfect for a week and after a week she started bucking. So my instructor worked with her doing the basics starting from the beginning. My instructor then got a knee ingury and couldn't work with Corby anymore. And also because Corby is so small it started hurting her back, so my instructor asked one of the lighter advanced rideres to work Corby (if they wanted). Then they left, so my instructor started putting me on her on Tuesdays. Corby is not a school horse. She is a challenge for the more advanced riders if they want to. They've had her checked for everything you can think of and they can't find anything wrong with her. Please stop saying she is hurt or anything like that. As I can't do anything about it. Corby isn't usually as bad as she was that day. Usually she will throw in one or two bucks and then that will be it. She was just having a bad day.

    Nymphomania isn't a back problem it's a reproductive problem...

    My mom's got a mini mare who has this problem, and let me tell you, if she was a normal sized horse, she would be down right dangerous. Part of the problem is physical, while another part of it becomes mental, because people become afraid of the horse, so she knows she can get away with the dangerous behavior. This mare was drugged too, when my mom's friend bought her; nothing was disclosed on her. It wasn't until the poor guy got the horse home, that the behavior started coming out.

    I don't think it really matters if people sign contracts, there are ways around that, and your barn owner could still lose everything if the horse throws and subsequently injures\kills someone; a horse like this DOES NOT belong in a riding program, period...

    A bucking horse is not a 'challenge for advanced riders'. At least not in a riding school. It is a lawsuit waiting to happen. You just cannot put children on horses known to display dangerous behaviour. A suitable 'challenge' for more advanced riders in a riding school is a horse who may be more forward moving; May need a perfect balance of seat, leg and hand to ahceive certain tasks; etc. Something that forces students to really improve certain parts of their riding to get a result. NOT a horse who is a known bucker and throws students. I worked in a riding school for 3 years and let me tell you, any of those horses developed a bucking problem they would have been out of the school program before you could say lawsuit.

    I just want to add that if this horse has a history of bucking, and the ability to throw riders, I don't care how advance the rider is, the horse should NOT be ridden in an arena with a 6 year old. If that horse threw you and proceeded to run around the arena, working up the school horses, chaos would ensue.

    And you would be surprised how easy it is to wiggle your way around a contract.

    Please! Its not my choice to ride Corby in that certain group! I was offered the chance to work with her and took it! This thread was only to tell you about my fall and me getting back on! No more about that she shouldn't be in riding schools or that she is in pain because its making ME feel bad and I can do nothing about it!

    I understood the point of your thread, but next time you are offered to ride her in a group of little kids, I would suggest you decline. You could get hurt, the horses could get hurt, and the kids could hurt. That's not something you would want to live with.
