We have an 8 footer you can borrow ROFLMAO. For what it's worth, he tried to buck with me once and it was very slow and big. Not hard to ride at all. If she does end up that big, just send her my way.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

LOL! Your on!! :) I guess it can't be worse than some of the things I've been through. I've been bucked off (in ND), fallen off, ran over (in NM), rolled over on (in Europe), drug through catcus (in Mt) (really..I was in the middle of no where, riding bareback and didn't want to lose my mount..so when I went off..I didn't let go of the reins, lol)

I can imagine his bucking is like riding that of the mare I was training for western pleasure. The club I was a part of had a play date and I decided for laughs I would ride my wp horse. I knew I wouldn't win anything, but what the hey, it was for fun. So on the flag race, I loped down (ever so slowly) to the barrel and grabbed the flag and started loping back. The mare decided she didn't like the flag and started bucking. It was almost like it was in slow motion. It wasn't hard to sit at all. I never once thought to drop the flag even though I had a crowd yelling at me to. I just sat the buck until I saw a good moment and I just stepped out of the stirrups and on to the ground. It was amazing! Really wish I had video of that one!

"Riding a horse is not a gentle hobby, to be picked up and laid down like a game of solitaire. It is a grand passion. It seizes a person whole and, once it has done so, he will have to accept that his life will be radically changed." -Ralph Waldo Emerson

I'm 5'3" and my legs barely hang past my 13.3hh gelding's stomach. They don't go past my 15hh mare's. She's a lot stockier than my gelding.

Zeus is exactly 16hh. I'm 5'4 and a half. He is not very wide, and has a pretty small barrel. Both of the pictures are old and he's gained more muscle and some weight but you get the idea.

With tack...


Bareback...

I give myself very good advice, But I very seldom follow it

I don't have anyone to take pics of me, so I only really have these ones. I have wonderful posture in the second pic, no? Poor Thomas. That is an old photo...
