'Rambo's rodeo'

It was another day of 'adopt a horse'..in which you look after one horse for the eight week long summer holidays- it's great. =P
Anyway, we were up on the hill, where there's this awesome, long stretch of grass, slightly sloped, which is perfect for racing. The other three riders I was with had already gone up, and seeing his mates run up, Rambo was understandingly a tad hypo and ansty about being left behind- so much that when I let him go he decided to punctuate each stride with a buck- and not just cute little upsies, but really big, rodeo style bucks. I know he bucks when he gets excited, but I was a little unprepared and ending up getting thrown out of the saddle so I was pretty much riding his neck. It was pretty interesting really, kinda just like riding a very skinny, small horse. He slowed down after not long, I think he was a bit unsure of this new style of riding lol, but I had lost the reins and they were around his ears, just as well he was only walking by now! I leaned forward as far as I could without actually somersaulting right over his head, which he seemed pretty determined to watch me do- he was putting his head down, providing an ideal 'slide'. But I have an intense disliking of coming off, whether it be an appropriate time or not! So I pulled his head up and pushed myself back into the saddle, at which he decided everything was fine and took off after his friends again. =P

Anyone else have any 'neck riding' experiences?
