Never mentioned anything about the child doing the work with the horse. And the horse wasn't born dangerous. Someone made the horse the way it is now. I've seen a number of people round pen wild mustangs and horses people have screwed up with the plastic bag technique. Never would I put a child on the end of a lunge line with any horse. I've learned the more you get bucked off the better your groundwork gets.

When I was 13, Someone had me work on their horse that was bucky, I broke out a horse, and trained my horse for 4-h including doing all the halter, western pleasure, and game training on my own with never having a lesson before. But then again I was a really confident rider, and I ride most of the time Thoroughbreds.

I would have someone who is a little bit more experienced help you with desensitizing your horses and teaching your horse to have some more respect. Maybe also get on your horse and teach him to stop bucking or to lessen the bucking.

Get him into a round pen or small arena with a sand floor, then...

Hold on tight, keep his head up, and remember how hard that ground is! Tell yourself you are NOT COMING OFF! Once you have ridden him out a couple times he'll stop bucking altogether and accept you as his boss. My guess is he has figured out that he can buck you off after a couple hops and so that's what he does. Not really likely he's spooky at everything at his age.

Sorry folks. Had to do it. I never rode with a helmet either. Maybe that's what's wrong with me.
