Fall:( (Rearing and Bucking)


Well today I took another fall off Chinga (3rd fall of him). But today it wasn't my fault. Please don't go calling Chinga bad or anything he just had a bad day. So anyway we were riding round only at a trot not a gallop....

Then he put his ears back and reared I grabbed his mane and lent forward so he didn't go over backward, once he had landed he bucked and bucked and bucked till I came off. Although when I came off he stood there with his rains dangling above me.

Although I didn't expect him to be well behaved as he hadn't been ridden in five days. But now I don't know if I want to get back on him just yet. My dad is saying that I should get on him other wise he will learn bad habbits like that is a way to get me off. I've always been taught that way but I've never had a fall like this.

I would get his back checked out as it sounds like he is in pain..... is the saddle fitting correctly????

Yes the saddle does fit correctly and he has been riding in that saddle for over 6 weeks and hasn't had a problem with it. Im 99 percent sure he was scared of something and the other one percent is he was just being a dog.

Sometimes Chinga just has a bad day....or a very bad day.

I know how you feel my horse does a drop.... take off... buck. When he gets spooked, I would definitely say take a step back, get on and walk him til he is quiet relaxed and swinging in his step... those ears flopping to the side. And remember to breath and keep your self relaxed... I know when i'm not relaxed my horse feels it and finds something to spook at. And then move up into the trot and if he spooks don't react by shouting at him. Just carry on or go back to the walk and start over. But the best thing is to get back in that saddle.

Good luck I will be thinking of you

(Oh god here come the tears again)

I was talking to mum about it and she is going to try and lunge us. Mums never lunged a horse so I'm going to show her how to do it. But I don't know if I want to get back on him tommorow because I am going to have a friend there.

Well this is really stupid I know but anyway. I was crying for 20 minutes because I couldn't believe that Chinga bucked me off. I know all horses might buck but if you had seen the bond between Chinga and I you would understand what I mean.

Whenever I get there in the morning as soon as he hears the car he is at the gate waiting for me, Im the only one who can ride him he just does little circles for everyone else because I "accidently" turned him into a one person horse because when he was being naughty doing little circles and backing up and running into tree's I was the one that rode him through it.

Oh chingazmyboy... please don't cry ... you'll get me going just now. I think tacking him up and showing your mom how to lunge him sounds like a great idea. Then get on him, he'll have had a little time to play a little and get a buck out of his system before you get on him. Just do baby steps and even if you only sit on him for 5 minutes that's fine, just remember to end on a good note. For you and Chinga.

Yea I now know he was scared not that he was playing up because of a few reasons:

A) He has NEVER reared
B) He has never bucked me only the little buck of exitment
C) We were trotting and he reared.

Thanks for the help. I know Chinga wouldn't try to hurt me. He thinks he is a little pony. Ah wrong there Chinga your like 15.2 hands high. He is scared of a little pony Punkin who beats him up. *cough cough* two bites *cough* *cough*and a kick.

Chingaz... I completely understand... you get used to the way things are and you just can't imagine your horse doing something to you... recently I shattered my right leg because my safe as mare panicked... my balance was half the reason I ended up falling (she's caught me completely off guard and I didn't pull myself together as best as I should have)... but I still fell off. Ironic when it was Evo who had been the arrogant horse to ride earlier that day. I think it shocks us more when we get into that idea that it won't happen and it does.
Please don't blame yourself, accident's happen hun... just thank that you came off clean enough not to break yourself. Remember the GOOD things with your horse and you'll be more than fine once you're back up and working through the nerves!
All the best!
