So my 5 year old has a nasty habit of bucking at horse shows at the canter. EVERY time I have asked for the canter in a class she has bucked (and gotten me off once) regardless of how many horses are in the ring. I was the only horse in 2 classes and she still bucked. She often bucks in the schooling ring too but only at the canter. We don't buck a lot at home but we have and that has only been at the canter as well.
My assumption is that it is partially a balance issue but why are we so consistent at shows? I've decided to hold off on canter classes for now but, well, walk trot is boring and there aren't a lot of classes to do. Has anyone had a similar problem? Any thoughts? She has recently developed a new bucking technique that I cannot ride through so please don't just say ride the buck!
