I have a mare that I have had since april. We use to go on 5 hr trail rides. Have intermedit riders on her. And than 3 months ago she started bucking. I have had her check and can't find nothing wrong. How can I get her to stop.
Ya it depends what the horse is doing when she bucks. That happened to me and my horse. He found my weakness lol. Everytime I kicked him to canter or lope he would kind of do a really small buck to warn me but I would keep trying to get him to canter and that's when he would start bucking I almost fell off a few times. So obviously I didnt want to keep going if he was going to keep bucking so I would stop but finally my sister help me get him straight again you just have to keep pushing him into a faster canter or lope because if they are going fast enough then they can't buck. Hope this helped!!!
I agree, get a trainer. Until then, get those riders off her. You don't need kids falling off because your horse is bucking. Try lunging before someone rides her, that should help a little. Posted via Mobile Device
No one rides her now. No one has been on her since she bucked me off. I had just got on her when she started bucking. I got hurt bad and was laid up for almost a month. I have a trainer. But the biggest problem is the fear of getting back on her.
If she only bucked once which got you off, that does not mean that she is now a bucker.
It's very likely that she was in some kind of discomfort if you just got on and she started bucking. Her back may have been out, or maybe she even had something as simple as a grass seed under her saddle blanket that was stabbing her in the back.
I would put her on the lunge, and then get an experienced rider to have a few rides on her before you get on. If she is not in discomfort she's probably not going to do anything wrong if she has always been very quiet like you say, but if you get on her feeling very tense and nervous and expecting her to buck, chances are she WILL!
