Somebody cracked an egg on your head. Or maybe just cracked your head. That is the silliest idea I have ever heard. You have got to be kidding, . . . You are, aren't you?

I'd love to see someone successfully crack an egg over a horse's head in the midst of a bucking fit and not end up sitting in the dirt. Do you carry eggs on every ride just in case the horse decides to throw in that random buck?

I have done it, my old horse when I was a teenager was a saint, but she would rear at water. If I knew I was passing water I would carry an egg in my pocket. As long as you predict it happening and are ready for it, it is possible.

All it achieved for me was that she would lift less and less high. Did not stop the overall behavior. And then there are the times when you have a half broken egg in your hand and have to wait for the horse to rise again.

That's rearing though, I could have cracked an egg over my horse's head the one time she reared.

OP is talking about bucking though, unless all you get a single pissy buck, I cannot see cracking an egg while riding out a bucking tantrum or trying to end one! Plus, if the horse gets it's head down, you'd need monkey arms to REACH it's head!
