OP - Pain sounds like a very good option. And the second, is her throwing a temper tantrum because she doesn't respect you/didn't understand what you were asking since she's young and green.

Either way, you should seek professional help. Have the vet out, have saddle fit checked, and ask a trainer to help you. My 3 year old bucked once out of a temper tantrum/repsect issue because she didn't want to go forward, but I made her do it anyway and we haven't had an issue since. If you allow her to keep bucking, and bucking you off, she will learn that if she bucks and you fall off, it's a way to get out of work. I wouldn't allow that to become a habit.

Okay, okay. I didn't have both legs hobbled. She was being very dangerous and I didn't want to get hurt. She was squealing and huffing and she was very angry. (Mind you, this is not the time she threw me) So I Just hobbled, ONE leg up and made her lunge for about 30 seconds, then took it off. i would never hurt my horse, she's been through enough as it it.

As for when she threw me off, I did get right back on and just walked her out, just kind of let her cool down a bit. Now looking back at the situation I think I know why she did. We have two horses, besides her. We had just gotten a new round bale and the other two were over stuffing their faces while I was making her work. I think she just got frustrated and threw a fit. :P But horse fits are big. lol Plus, as I've said before, we got a storm that day and she was feeling really good.

So you tied up one leg and lunged a 3 legged horse. I am not surprised that she is very angry, it sounds like she is still going through a lot.

Do the horse a favor and get a trainer who can work through her issues .

Did you get your training program straight out of The Horse Whisperer?
That's not "hobbling"--it's "tying a leg up"--and for the life of me, I don't know what that's supposed to accomplish. Wowza.

You can't punish her for buckking in that scenario. An experienced horseperson would likely have seen the warning signs and gotten her feet moving to avert the whole disaster. I suggest that, as a start, you pay closer attention to her body language.

Call me a bleeding heart but asking a horse to lunge with one leg tied up IS hurting your horse, no idea where you came up with that idea or what you thought it would achieve.

To be perfectly honest, it sounds like you should take her back to the rescue, I feel sorry for her.

Unsubscribing.

All horses deserve, at least once in their lives, to be loved by a little girl.

I think lunging a horse with a leg tied up has the potential to be dangerous to the horse. Had you ever done that before? I really think one should not do that unless you have a very experienced horse person helping you. I am not sure I see the value, but I know it has been used in the past as a training tool.

I too think you should take her back to the rescue she was obviously far safer there!

RIDE your horse FORWARDS and keep him STRAIGHT

You know what? She was doing all this before I tied one leg up. I was simply making her submit to my authority by tying her. She wasn't submitting before. And I know of famous horse trainers that ride out bucking horses with one leg tied to break them. Oh any btw, I do have professional help from a train with 40+ years experience. They said what I did was fine. It did no damage to Gene. All it did was make her submit. I don't see a problem with it. I'm sorry if you do.

It did a lot of damage to her psycological state I can promise you that. Tieing a leg up on a horse is extremely old fashioned and IS cruel, by tieing a leg up she is not submitting to you because you have authority, she is submitting because she is in PAIN and utterly terrified and has no other option. It is doing exactly the same as thrashing a horse into submission with a whip! cruel, unnessecery and unproductive in the long run

Take away the restriction and you will end up with an angry horse who's problem realy hasnt been solved.

What you did was CRUEL!!!!!

You've probably also damaged her back because horses musculature was never designed to walk on 3 legs and she will have pulled muscles in her back and legs, she could also have done severe damage to the tendons in the leg opposite the one you tied up!

RIDE your horse FORWARDS and keep him STRAIGHT

Why not share the name of the rescue you got her from so we can call and get their opinion on it?
