buck, pigroot

I have pretty much grown up with horses and I always thought a 'pigroot' (yeh lovely word :roll: ) was when only the hind feet came of the ground http://youtube.com/watch?v=r_R8gVLuvvM

And a buck is when all four feet leave the ground and the back arches http://youtube.com/watch?v=DnGwMS3RRMA

However on different horsie internet sites people (especially from other countries) seem to call a buck and a pigroot the same thing.
Do you call these two the same?

I call a pigroot a halfarsed attempt at a buck. And a buck is when they put some effort into it.

Agreed. A pigroot is more like a kickup of the back feet and a buck is when they horse is really meaning it.
