Thanks, guys. So about the it harmful even if done lightly? (Just to be clear, I never do this. It's not something that I was taught, so it doesn't even cross my mind, plus I've read enough warnings about see-sawing that I wouldn't do it.) But when I see other people do it, is it necessarily painful to the horse?

And yea, I won't be letting her on again. I know she can be rough, so I made her take off her spurs and told her to go easy on his face, but the fact that he did something so out of character seems to mean he didn't like her up there.

Now that you mention spurs, with her pulling on the mouth and then possibly using leg cues with the spurs pushing him into the bit hard, he probably felt he had no release and wasnt sure so he went up to get his release. Very common, you can see many youtube videos of this happening. Bc of these two motions mixed together.

She wasn't wearing them -- I made her take them off before she got on -- but maybe since she's used to using spurs she overdid it with her leg cues and caused the same effect

She was see sawing his mouth, and hoofing him in the guts to make him go back??? No wonder he went up, she created the rear, pure and simple.

See sawing is bad, no matter how lightly. Keep the kid off your horse and you shouldn't have a problem.

I started work with a new trainer today, and we did a lot of backing, and he was a perfect angel. All I do to back him is give light even rein pressure (which is what he's supposed to back for, right?) and he did it that way just fine as usual at least 15 times today, so I'm officially not worried.

I feel silly about even posting in the first place, but y'all are always pretty forgiving of my "Omg my horse what's wrong is he broken??" paranoid mom posts. :)

Glad he was good for you, I'm not surprised :)

Don't worry about the paranoid mum thing, my vet diagnosed my horse with neurotic owneritis just recently lol!
