Survived my first "evil pony"!

So there is a lesson horse at my barn, and he is known as the "Dr. Jeckell and Mr. Duncan" hahaha. He is the perfect little lesson horse until a switch flips and something sets him off.

In my lesson today, we were doing squares around half the ring to work on keeping a horse straight between my legs. When we got to the wall at one point, Duncan wanted to turn right and I wanted him to turn left, and he had a FIT. He started bucking and bucking, just being totally naughty.

And I didn't even blink! I just sat up and pulled him in and had him under control and four feet on the ground within 15 seconds. I have never had to deal with a mean bucker before, only like one or two bucks if a horse gets excited or scared, but Duncan wanted me OFF.

I was really really proud of myself for how I handled it :) And so was my trainer!

Thats a bad pony. There is a pony at a place where my cousin rides and I don't remember its name but the kids get on it and it bucks them off one by one! And Gretchen my cousin posted the video of this in You Tube. I will try to find it if I do ill post it here.

Good for you for staying on, and handling the situation.

Haha good job with staying on!! Ponies hate me! They always want me off.

Think of it from his point of view - he's tired of all the ring work and the bronc act has likely unseated more than a few riders.

Saddlebag, Yeah, that's why my trainer was happy that I didn't let him get me off. That would only have encouraged his bad behavior.
