bucking horse

Theres this horse that I want to ride but she bucks and I've been working with her on the lunge line with no saddle or bridle on her and she's never bucked . I was thinking that I will try working with her saddle and bridle on on the lunge line and see if she bucks.. someone said maybe her back needs adjusted but idk because she's never bucked around me before and ivebeen working with her for about 3 weeks now every other day. I do know that she does not get ridden often and maybe that's why. Im going to talk to my trainer about it tomorrow

So you've never ridden the horse? Try lungeing with the saddle on and see how she handles that......

How much has the horse been worked with? Have you done this before?

Some horses will buck when the saddle is on for a couple of times at first, but it is a bad habit for them to get in really.

Have you tried riding and she has bucked or not?

I have not ridden her yet but others have and she has bucked. And I have not been working with her long only about four weeks. I have a trainer with me when I work with her so that helps me along but I've been around horses for 8 years. And tomorrow im going to put a saddle and bridle on her then lunger her.. I already said I was doing that soo yeah

If she has been ridden, while you have a bridle/saddle on her lunging I would get after her if she bucks.....she needs to learn that is not acceptable! Chase her and yell NO at her spanking the ground behind her, don't spank her with the stick/string though....keep us posted on how it goes with her......

I lunged her today with saddle and bridle on and all went well.. she's alittle unbalanced because she's not ridden often and she can be alittle quick but slows down when I say whoa... im not really sure why she bucks... im going to try riding her after someone else has ridden her and I watch. Because I've never actually seen her being ridden so im not sure how much she bucks and if its a problem that can be sloved by making her go forward

Good luck and let us know how it goes!

If she's unbalanced, then maybe she is bucking to let the rider know she can't do it and is losing her balance, or maybe the rider was unbalanced which wouldn't help an already unbalanced horse.
I know of a few horses who actually buck to get their balance back during canter, or so they can get back to a trot. How old is the horse?

Of course, if it's not pain, which would be my first check.s
