    Unhappy Bucking

    I was walking a horse in and I was trying to put him in his stall and all of a sudden, my mom says he bucked, he bucked for no reason.There were some geese around but other than that I don't know what he was bucking at.

    A horse does things before a buck, the lowered head is first, slower pace. React before the buck.

    Or better yet have someone more experienced lead this horse in so you don't get hurt.

    Are you sure he didn't have a horse fly biting him? Tis the season.

    I'm all kinds of confused. Were you leading the horse or riding him? Was it an honest-to-God buck or did he just kick out? (I'd think you would have noticed if it was an actual buck)

    Are you asking for advice on how to correct this behavior or how you should have reacted? Are you wondering if it's a common thing for horses to behave this way? Or are you simply stating that it happened?

    Sounds like a bomber bit him, by the way you make it sound. Could we have more detail?

    If you didn't notice it, chances are he just kicked out with his back legs, rather than bucking.

    Could be many things, like being bitten by a fly, or he might have felt something around his legs.

    I wouldn't worry about it too much unless it happens again. Make sure he always knows when you're walking behind him.
