Thanks guys, I feel worse now because if he was scared and Im 99% sure he was scared why wasn't I awake to notice this. In my lessons I ride a horse who freaks at a hose or anything when he is in a scared mood. So I should have been awake. I could have helped him ride throught it. I mean a car back fired right next to Chinga and he didn't freak also my friend touched an eletric fence and screamed really loud right next to him and he didn't freak.

I think it might of been the neighbours dogs but I used to ride him at his old owners place and there were two dogs that I used to ride him with there and he didn't seem to mind.

I think you're being too hard on yourself.
Yes there are things we could have done to prevent falling off... if I had better balance for one, I most probably would have been able to stay on Honey and calm her down. Instead I fell... but at least now I know what I need more work on.
Sometimes our horses spook at things we wouldn't expect them too... my "idiot" of a gelding (I label him that affectionately lol) doesn't spook at the normal stuff... instead he recently was on a road ride and had train tracks to cross, new places to go and he spooked at a blimming letterbox that had mail sticking out of it. I'm not sure any of us could be completely prepared to react if our horse spooks at something we are even thinking of.
Don't over analyse... if he's not sore and he's spooked at something, you can get passed this. You don't need to hold his 'hand'... but he does need to know that you are there to help if he spooks.. and to calm down instead of going bronco.

Thanks, I've decided I am going to get back in the saddle no matter what tommorow. Because if I don't ge back on he can learn that's away to get me off. I understand we don't have to go galloping around the paddock a million miles an hour we can just trot (Neither of us like walking)

Maybe JD and Evo are related Chelle cos he spooks at letterboxes too yet cars, trucks, motorbikes etc don't even make him take a 2nd look! :P

Todays disaster was the hose that is currently lying across a part of my riding area cos id been filling my mares water..... JD NEVER rears, he can ocasionally buck but he has never reared yet today over something as silly as the garden hose he FLIPPED his lid! I was so unprepared for his hissy fit that he almost made me hit the dirt! He was up on his back legs and didnt want to come down again! Thank god I had a quick reaction time and flicked my feet out of the stirrups and jumped/half fell off! I wasnt impressed but it just shows that you can never can be prepared for a horses reaction to something no matter how well you may know them :(

Good for you!! Let us know how it goes.
And hey, I love walking... because I know how beneficial it is for my horses.
But I also like schooling, so I bet that's the difference here too


Beka I didn't know you had an account on here! Lol JD and Evo have got to be long lost brothers Evo once spooked at a hose lying across the paddock cos I asked him to walk over it... needless to say that the "green snake" was going to eat his legs up and we did some really nice overexagerrated shoulder in to escape!! He did the same thing with Simone, except he climbed the wee dirt mound beside it instead. Idiot.
So glad Honey is not as airheaded as him!

Well It didn't exactly go to well but I think he is sore because, we were troting around after walking for about ten minutes and he felt fine so then I asked him to trot he put is ears back a little bit but he usually does that when he wants to be lazy. So we trotted for about two minutes and then he bucked. The saddle and everything is fine, after he bucked I was going to try again and kick him forward but he kept putting his ears back and head down, he also did this with a squeeze. Now I've lost my nerve with him:(

Awh that sucks. :( Can you get someone more experienced to ride him? Or get someone more experienced to see if he is sore? Maybe call out a Chiropractor? Don't give up with him!

Im never going to give up on him I ride a pony Corby who bucks and I can control her when she bucks but she has never thrown me. I can't get anyone else out here to ride him because he just does small circles and backs into trees for everyone else. I was just talking to his old owners and they suggest just to let him relax and chill out so that's what I'm going to do.

I'm sure other people as experienced as you, or more experienced could ride him.
That's the last thing I'd be doing. He needs to be checked out, and if it's just him being naughty he needs to be shown not to be naughty.
