Don't grab on to the mane! Just don't!
Well... my horse just bucked me off... yeah, ouch... This was the first time I have fallen off a horse (broke my streak of 4 years? almost 5?) It wasn't fun...
Anyway this isn't the first time he has done it, he took off with my sister who is not really horsey, and bucked her off. He just did the same to me.
He has taken off on me before but has never bucked me off until today.
He started out trotting, nice slow trot, then he started going faster and I tried to slow him down but then just took off and started to buck then he ran away.
He's not a bad horse, usually, this has only happen twice that he bucked.
No, it is NOT his saddle, he is in NO pain.
Horses are scared of two things... Things that move and things that don't.
