My first buck was when I bought my first horse by myself she was a 4 yr old abused 14.1 hand high dapple grey straight egyption arabian. I went to look at her and to ride her and she did great and perfect. The second I got on her at my place I went flying back and forth through the arena and she finally managed to buck high enough to lose me. So I just figured that someone dopped her up when I went to look at her I was completely confused! I guess you could say I was lucky cause I had been riding sence before I can even remember and I did not get bucked off untill I was sixteen. NOw its almost a regular thing becuase I take in horses that are misunderstood and have rearing and bucking problems and try to get that fixed. I got dumped yesterday by my personal riding horse, and it was because she did not want to work and I was making her tuck her head and lope instead of RUN, so she gave me a peice of her mind and she bucked and reared but I don't think she ment to throw me...just to say umm hello stop... cause after I hit the ground she did not realize it till she turned around and seen me on the ground. Then her eyes got as big as saucers and took off running....with her tail all flipped up like OOOPS better run! It was cute. So you could say I am quiet sore this morning. Just my arms... from making her arc her neck. Its depressing when my 3 yr old behaves under saddle better than my 12 yr old. Lol. No my 12 yr old is actually amazing. I am the only one she messes with. If you stick a 5 yr old on her she will pretty much fall asleep on them cause she gets bored going around and around. But if I try to go around and around she gets mad... she's a mare.... what do you expect.
Good for you - for not falling off that is! The first time I was on a horse that bucked I fell off and broke my arm. It was the first time riding my new pony But we've still got him and he's great - just rather grumpy when he decides he's had enough work!
When I bestride him, I soar, I am a hawk: he trots the air; the earth sings when he touches it; the basest horn of his hoof is more musical than the pipe of Hermes. ~William Shakespeare
