    Bucking can be pretty scary.. I've been bucked once and not the best experience. I was new to riding though. Now I tend to stay on a little better :P

    It's better to look up than down. Down = you're going down, girly.

    Try not to squeeze. A horse is like a bar of soap. Using leg properly is fine but pinching with your knees, heels, or thighs = you're going to have a bumpy ride. It's counter intuitive but relaxing is the best way to go about it.

    Either way you definitely should take note of any bucking.
    But sometimes bucking is a physical sign, so when your horse bucks it's good to get them looked over and checked out for any signs of pain. Other times it's a training issue. Either they aren't ready or they are too excited or just don't want to a person on period.

    I got into riding because I live on a ranch. My dad would put me on his horse and walk us around the ranch. I loved those rides soo much I decided I wantedto live with horses then and there.

    My Mom use to own lots. And because was and still is horse crazed from the way she raised me. She decided to go horse hunting. We found this 9 year old tabiano paint that scared the 12 year old rider so my mom rode her ,put me on her and knew that even though she wasn't perfect she was the one. But after 9 years of owning her she decided that was it for riding so now she's retired. Now we've had 8 different horses in my 9 years of horse ownership and currently own 4 with a baby on the way any week now(: so I owe it all to my mom.

    Hi everyone! I'm Katie, 15 years old. I got into riding because my mom worked as an out rider on a race track. I've always loved horses, and I always will! I have a chestnut TB mare named Callie that I do dressage with. :)

    Cool barrel racing Arabian

    I've been trying to give Bandit my 11 month old colt a bath. He just won't let me clean him. I've given him a bath before and he didn't act like this. What should I do?
