Bucking horse

How would you train a horse to stop bucking under saddle?

Depends on the reason for the buck.

is he being naughty or is he in pain? I'd have him checked for saddle fit and soreness, most horses don't buck to be buttholes, they are trying to tell you they are hurting.

Can you give more information as to when he's bucking?

When you ask her to do something, or sometimes randomly.

Make him disengage his hindquarters. You have to find a way to make it not fun for him to buck.

Either disengage his hind end to thwart a buck, or just push him foward; if the horse is focused on moving foward, he can't put so much effort into bucking.

Don't pull them to a stop... keep their feet moving.
