i've been trying to think of how you 'mimic' a buck without being on a horse. The closest I can think to come is sit on a normal kitchen chair, don't put your feet on the floor, put them up next to the sides of the front legs, and have someone yank the chair by the back legs without warning...that's kind of like what a buck feels like. Kinda also like being shoved from behind. But it also depends on the 'intesity' of the buck. I have been bucked off before and that's no fun. And I have been on a 'run-a-way' horse before and I guess it's not fun for me because I have had horses fall when I'm on them and dang near fall on top of me, or had them stop short or change directions suddenly when galloping and I hit the ground HARD. I'm glad you weren't scared but it sounds like a dangerous situation to me
Haha, I always wondered how to "mimic" a horse buck(: And I have had experience wit the chair thing. My sister use to try and yank me out of the rocking chair, lol.
The best thing to do an a run-away horse, is to try and turn him as if you are going around in a circle (not a small circle) then as you start circling the horse, gradually shorten the size of the circle, and then the horse should start to slow down. When the horse seems to slow down, keep shortening the circle, and when it gets real small, then the horse will be forced to go into a trot because it is hard for them to run fast in a small circle. Once the horse goes into a trot, it should be easier to handle. If your horse won't turn while galloping away, there is always the "emergency stop," where you put one hand on the withers while holding one rein, and pull down and hard on the other rein with the other hand. It hurts the horse, but if your life is at risk, it is a good idea to use it.
