Oh dear

Well iv had my new horse 2 weeks now,, my older sister has rode him out, no problems, i have rode him bare back and he was great, today my younger sister,( not being nasty but weighs more than me) has rode him today and he was being very bolshy, he wasn't happy at her being on him,, ( i could tell as his ears where back all the time) and when she went to put him in canter he bucked,,when i spoke to him he pricked his ears forward and kept looking at me, ( bless him) ,, i dont think he liked being ridden by my younger sister, needless to say she wont be riding him again, poor lad,, i want him to be a happy boy

What tack was he ridden in all three times? You mentioned he was bareback for you.

It might not be her weight, but the way she is riding. Could be she rides much different than the two of you. Just a guess though.

Be glad that you have an honest horse who knows how to say stop, and thumbs up for listening to him! :) I think that's a great, but rare ability in a horse, considering they are prey animals and it's their nature to hide pain and weaknesses.

Me and my older sister thought it might be due to my younger sisters weight, also it was the first time he had seen my sis aswell, but he is sound with me and thats what im most bothered about,(i wont be letting my younger sis ride him again)

How tall is your horse? Is he a small built type? I agree with you it sounds like she was upsetting him. It could have been her weight, or it could have been her seat along with her weight.
